The judge said, Had he simply turned his mind to the specific words that Mr Salman said Ms. Ram used when she asked to take the food, or the fact that Ms Ram made no attempt to conceal what she was doing, he would likely have appreciated the significant possibility of a misunderstanding between Ms. Ram and Ms Salman, Justice Warren ruled.
