Obstruction Of Justice
The impeding of those who seek justice in a court, or of those who have duties or powers of administering justice therein; includes attempting to influence, intimidate, or impede any juror, witness, or officer in any court regarding the discharge of his or her duty. Statutes addressing this subject may reach beyond interference with the judicial process and also proscribe interference with police officers and other such administrative officials.
Any violation of law for which a penalty is prescribed, including both felonies and misdemeanors.
The reason given for a court's judgment, finding or conclusion, opposed to the decision, which is the judgment itself. When the court is composed of more than one judge or justice, and more than one opinion has been written in a given case, the opinion that expresses the view of he majority of the judges presiding, and thus announces the decision of the court, is referred to as the majority opinion, but written to express the majority of judges presiding, and thus announces the decision of the court, is referred as the majority opinion. A concurring opinion is a view basically in accord with the majority opinion, but written to express a somewhat different perception of the issues, to illuminate a particular judge's reasoning or expound a principle which he or she holds in high esteem. An opinion that concurs "in the result only" is one that rejects the reasoning and conclusions concerning the law or the facts on the basis of which the majority reached its decision, and that expresses a different view that has coincidentally led by the judge or justice to recommend the same disposition as was agreed upon by the majority. A dissenting opinion is a view that disagrees with the disposition made of the case by the court arrived at the decision, or the principles of law announced by the court in deciding the case. Opinions may also be written that express a dissent "in part."
