Report No. 58
Instinct for appeal
2.18. In this context, we may examine the structure of appeals. The instinct for appeal is human. St. Paul's famous cry-"I appeal unto Caesar", expresses a fundamental instinct in humanity, as has been pointed out1. Nevertheless, it is also recognised that there must be art end to litigation. Though provisions for appeals are essential as providing checks and counter-checks for arriving at a correct decision, some reasonable limits have to be set to the search for a true and correct decision.
