Just F.Y.I.: I thought in the future you might want to be aware of this:
"Summary Judgement" appeared in today's issue of Immigration Daily. Lawyer's Spelling...
Summary Judgment would be the standard "American English" spelling. ie.
Source: Black's Law Dictionary, Seventh Edition published by West Group.
("Judgment" is the proper spelling when using the word to refer to a court's
final determination of rights or obligations of parties in a case, including
a decree or an appealable order). Compare: In British English usage, you
might find the spelling as "judgement" in this context. In "American
English," "Judgement" is the proper spelling where the meaning is about
reflection. Also, in yesterday's edition, (while we are at it, pointing out
matters of grammar and spelling rather than substantive law and policy
content)...spelling: "occurrence" is correct, rather than "occurrance."
Imm. Atty. ILW.COM Subscriber,
Editor's Note: If we erred in following British usage rather than the American, we apologize. Your editor was brought up using British English, and despite a determined effort to follow American usage, lapses into British usage do sometimes occur.
