the legal document stating the reasons for a judicial decision; "opinions are usually written by a single judge"

in academic terms, is the judgement or viewpoint reached after analysing, assessing and evaluating arguments, claims and evidence. Academic opinion is objective, like that of a judge who weighs the evidence (for and against) and judges each case on its merits.

A concurring opinion is by a justice who agrees with the ruling but for reasons different from the majority. Dissenting opinions are by justices who disagree with the ruling itself. Opinions may or may not be published.

A claim that somebody believes to be true.
Opinion, unjustified in a logical sense, not yet tied down by way of reason (logos). In this regard, opinion may be true, but not presented in terms which make its claims stand as objective fact. For this reason, opinion is thought to be merely subjective, or private in its efficacy.
