JUDGMENT AND ORDER – JUDGMENT OF COURT – Whether a judgment/order of court remains valid until set aside


“…ln any case, the words of the judex on any issue are final subject to review, if the decision is one by law, appealable. The judex may be right or wrong. His decision nonetheless binds the advocate and his client. In the words of King Henry VIII: the teacher’s knowledge is measured by the pupil’s lack of it. By Section 168(1) of the Evidence Act presumption of regularity attends every decision or judicial act shown to have been substantially done in a regular manner. Accordingly, until set aside, such decisions remain valid.” Per EKO, J.S.C. at p. 53
