Default Is Finality a Concern?

Is Finality a Concern?

Here's what Wikipedia has to say about it...

Finality (law)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Finality, in law, is the concept that certain disputes must achieve a resolution from which no further appeal may be taken, and from which no collateral proceedings may be permitted to disturb that resolution. For example, in some jurisdictions, a person convicted of a crime may not sue their defense attorney for incompetence or legal malpractice if the civil lawsuit would call into question the finality of the criminal conviction.[1][2] Finality is considered to be important because, absent this there would be no certainty as to the meaning of the law, or the outcome of any legal process.

The importance of finality is the source of the concept of res judicata - that the decisions of one court are settled law, and may not be retried in another case brought in a different court.[3]

I have given up on any finality as far as Bobsa Vader is concerned.

You are probably correct Joe although I had just logged out for three days but couldn't stay away.

The least you could do Joe is spell my name the way I have it.

Default Re: Is Finality a Concern?

I spent this weekend thinking about finality and was able to think of some examples from my own experience that included both finality and change.

I am a great believer in change and not too keen on finality.

One example of change that I thought about was my rental lease. The last paragraph of the lease says that this lease is subject to change. I seem to remember that all my apartment rentals said that in the lease.

Many of the goods that I buy are able to be changed if even I change my mind for any reason I am able to return them. Once in a while something will say all sales are final. I stay away from those.
