Obiter Dicta

May 17, 2024

Obiter refers to remarks made by a judge that are not legally binding on the parties involved in the case. These statements may include discussions on hypothetical situations or legal issues unrelated to the main case. Unlike the ratio, which forms the basis of the judicial decision, obiter dicta are not essential to the judgment, even if they are legally correct.
