Vincent JA

Persuasive reasoning

As is apparently common among justices of this country, Vincent JA finds that his Honour's own decisions are 'quite persuasive' (citation omitted; emphasis added). His Honour's learned reflection upon the doctrine of stare decisis is to note that this state of affairs is not unexpected. Hat tip to Myles for sending in this gem of self-reflexive judicial wit.

Perhaps not unsurprisingly, I find my own reasoning in Arundell quite persuasive and am comforted that other members of the Court agree that the decision was correct.
