    I think it quite ridiculous that judges can make such blatant errors and no mechanism is in place to correct them.
    It shouldn’t be for a further court address.
    It makes a mockery of our legal system that such errors must stand when they are of such an obvious nature and basically a fault of the court.
    You cant make caselaw if the judgement makes no sense.
