Judgments & Tribunal Decisions sorted by topic – at least in guiding principles – are presented and listed on the following pages. In addition to the guiding principles, summaries of the facts and comments on the judgements can also be found. Comments reflect our opinion and cannot claim to be exhaustive.
Please always remember that every tribunal decision – even a supreme court one – is based on a particular individual case. Generalisations are therefore usually neither possible nor meaningful. Rather, an examination of the individual facts often appears to be necessary.
