Misinterpretation of evidence

The weight of authorities focus on how alleged misinterpretation may have distorted the overall process. For a discussion of recent authorities and application, see eg:

In the key case of SZRMQ v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection [2013] FCAFC 142; (2013) 219 FCR 212, Flick J was in dissent as to the standard of interpretation required; the majority concluded that some margin of misinterpretation could be tolerated whereas Flick J appeared to conclude that the standard expected of an interpretation is higher.
