"Fiat justitia ruat caelum“, “Let Justice be Done, Though the Heavens Fall“.


From Bermuda Legal - Let Justice be Done, Though the Heavens Fall: the constitutional independence of the Supreme Court of Bermuda

"By his use of this resonant phrase, Mr. Justice Hellman has sent a clear message to the Government of Bermuda (and the media) that the Supreme Court of Bermuda is constitutionally independent, and that it will treat all parties fairly in accordance with the law, whatever the political consequences.
This is a message that appears to be just as important in Bermuda as in England and Wales, given the occasional forgetfulness of Governments and the media in both jurisdictions as to the proper role and function of the Judiciary".
