Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words Hand up/down
Ah, terms of art. An opinion is not a verdict nor vice versa.
An opinion is what happens when an issue of law needs to be resolved by a judge. After rumination, his (or her) honour responds to the legal arguments of counsel and says "This is what the law means in this case or situation."
A verdict is what happens when a jury, instructed on the law by a judge, hears evidence and decides the facts of a case, and then decides the ultimate issue in the case by applying the law to the facts.
There is no occasion when there is, or needs to be, congruence between my legal opinions and the jury's verdict. Different provinces, wot?
