Bob sues Rob in a civil court (adversarial system).
I am right and Rob is wrong because of A.
No, A does not apply because of X.
No way. X does not stand because of B. Therefore, A still applies.
The judge says:
I accept Rob's contention that A does not apply because of X. Bob has no case.
That said, the judge does not rebut or even talk about Bob's B (which negates Rob's X in Bob's view). It is known that Bob's reply was admitted and the judge definitely has seen it — it is not the case that it was dismissed for procedural reasons like late filing or whatever.
Where rights of appeal are not available for whatever reason (procedure-specific statutory prohibition, or the court already being the top court), are there any other remedies for Bob e.g. a claim of judicial misconduct?
