Following two confusions. I am sure you have the solution to it, as always:
1) Is the decision of lower court (lower than court of appeal) is persuasive on Court of Appeal? If yes, does the same apply to further higher courts in hierarchy?
2) In Civil case, Claimant is also referred as “Plantiff”. But there is slight difference in between these two. What that difference is.
As for persuasiveness, I doubt that the higher court (right the way up through the hierarchy!) would pay much attention to the decision of a judge in an inferior court
And claimant v plaintiff … a claimant appears to be a person that feels they have a valid claim. For example, a person that believes they should be entitled to, say, disability benefits would be a claimant
A plaintiff (the word comes from the same basic root as the word ‘plead’) is a person that is appealing to the judicial system asking for justice. Pleading for a ‘right’ decision
Will that do?
It did. Thank you!
You’re very welcome
