Mitzvah #100 - Having the wicked lose in court

A judge may not decide that a sinner deserves to lose the case simply because the other side is more righteous.

Applies to everybody, always, everywhere.

Verse: "Do not pervert the justice of the poor" (Shmot 23:6), where "poor" refers to the spiritually poor.
