TitleJudicial decision - Judgment

A Judicial decision is only an authority for what it actually decides. It cannot be quoted for a proposition that may seem, to follow from it. Every Judgment must be read applicable to the particular facts proved or assumed to be proved. Generality of expression that may be found cannot be intended to be exposition of whole law but must be regarded as governed or qualified by particular facts of the case in which such expression occurs. It is neither desirable nor permissible to pick up a word or sentence from the Judgment divorced from the context of the question under consideration and to treat it to be complete law declared by Court.
