Judges make judgments. So does everybody else – about nearly everything …
How is your judgement?
Ever say, “in my judgement … ”?
See, just the mention of the use of this word conjures up so many things – and possibly judgement is one of them.
It’s most frequent use is personal, it’s more official one is a ruling by a court or quasi-judicial body. Or a parent. Or a peer. Or a community.
To lose a judgement in the legal arena ranks between annoying and life-shattering depending on circumstances. And I’ve never met anyone who ‘won’ a judgement in a courtroom who felt they hadn’t lost something, lost money, lost time, lost opportunity - or ground. Nobody feels like a lottery winner in those cases, that’s for certain.
