Daan Kruger is a Panel-beater and his wife Sarah is a teacher. Little did the Mothibes and the Van der Merwes know that Daan planned to run his panel-beating business from home in future. And then the noise started! Daan did not listen to the complaints of the neighbours and Worked from early in the morning until late at night.

Effective system of law reporting example to allow the lower ranking courts to see what the higher ranking courts have held. 2. A hierarchy of courts which are separated in to different levels each court follows decisions made by courts above it .the arguments of the lawyers are then put forward in court to reason upon which the court will determine the ratio decidendi in distinguish with ratio decendenti of a courts decision which can bring other courts sometimes they can find obiter dicta which basically means “remarks in passing” they are not directly applicable to resolve dispute in court but maybe a effective force .

Appeal if a party is not satisfaction with court’s decision that part can appear to superior courts . if its criminal matters an appeal may filed against the conviction against sentence. The superior courts will then view the ratio decidendi when they party appeals the court does not listen to oral evidence about the facts of the case , the court analyses the typed record which first made decision there after listens to the attorneys / lawyers arguments made. when the decision is upheld the a quo is set away if the appeals dismissed the court a quo is confirmed .

Review : if any deviation in procedure the case will be reviewed , example evidence that was tampered with an opportunity to present the case on their own a personl lodging a complaint about present the case on their own . A person lodging a complaint about proceedings not the decision itself
