Mitzvah #109 - The lone witness

One witness is insufficient to help the Bet Din decide a court case.

Unless there are 2 Kosher witnesses, a case cannot be decided on the basis of witnesses.

Applies to everybody, always, everywhere

Verse: "Do not decide by the word of one witness" (Devarim 19:16)
