Mitzvah #103 - Perverting justice

One is prohibited from rendering incorrect judgements; acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent.

Included is the prohibition of delaying punishment once a ruling has been rendered.

Included is the prohibition of filibustering for the sake of delaying the ruling.

Applies to everybody, always, everywhere.

Verse: "Do not pervert justice" (Vayikra 19:35)
