Judgments in higher education are being torn down - judges are damn good
The district court ruling in the so-called university test case is torn down. The entire trial must be retaken on account of disputes, the Göta High Court decides.
The reason is that the judge in the case was disputed because of statements he made about the case at a law club meeting, according to the court's judgment.
26-year-old lawyer Edward Lundqvist says in a first comment to SVT News:
- I haven't read the decision yet, but it's clear that my client feels a relief, he says.
What do you think the whole trial should be about?
- From my perspective, that's what we've asked for and it's good. Now there is still work to prepare and redo this before a new hearing in district court, says Edward Lundqvist.

However, the court's chairman and lawyer Lars-Gunnar Lundh claim that he did not act wrong.
A press release from the Göta High Court states: "The chairman of the court thinks he has not expressed himself in a way that would mean that he has taken a position in the case before the case was decided.""Unusual for judgments to be torn down by hell"
In January, three men were sentenced to prison sentences for, among other things, aiding in false insurance, serious crime. Together, they have driven the HP help that sold "cheat packages" to people around the country, which would help buyers achieve top results in the college exam.
Police hit the league in the middle of the college exam on April 14 last year. Several other aides were also sentenced, as were 23 people who bought cheating packages from the league.
- It is very uncommon for judgments to be demolished for reasons of disunity, and extra miserable in large cases for it to then become more aware. I have no statistics but can imagine that less than one percent of all the goals that are decided are demolished for that reason, says Robert Nordh, associate professor of litigation at Uppsala University to TT.
