The Sharia of Moses in the TORA
Part 2 - The 365 Prohibitions of the Tora
278 - A JUDGE PREVENTING JUDGMENT AGAINST A PERSON OF EVIL REPUTE
By this prohibition, a judge is forbidden to pervert judgment against a litigant whom he knows to be a wicked sinner.
The paramount duty of the judge is thus to render justice impartially to all who come before him, rich and poor, sinner and saint.*
