"I reread my judgment and couldn't understand it" - Albie Sachs when referring to his dissenting judgment in the South African National Defence Union case.
This was from a very interesting panel discussion I attended yesterday. I will put some notes up from the talk later today and link to the podcast of the event.
People who know me well know that I have great reservations about many of Sach's judgments, the usefulness thereof for lower courts and the general lack of guidance they give to laypeople. So it was with much pleasure that I heard Sachs make that comment.
