 Legal Definition of Dicta
DICTA - The part of a judicial opinion which is merely a judge's editorializing and does not directly address the specifics of the case at bar; extraneous material which is merely informative or explanatory.
Dicta are judicial opinions expressed by the judges on points that do not necessarily arise in the case.
Dicta are regarded as of little authority, on account of the manner in which they are delivered; it frequently happening that they are given without much reflection, at the bar, without previous examination.

 SurfWax: News, Reviews and Articles On Obiter Dicta
As an impish obiter dicta on the curious quasi-judicial process of impeachment it was an apt observation.
Were it otherwise, a mass of obiter dicta, deployed rhetorically and argumentatively by judges in the course of explaining how a legal rule is arrived at, would take on the force of binding law...
Agreeing with the AITUC contention that the judgement was 'obiter dicta (not enforceable under law)', the Attorney-General suggested that the notice might be issued to the government.

 "Dicta" in Holy Trinity and Everson - Part 2
In a previous essay, we showed that the U.S. Supreme Court's declaration that America is a "Christian Nation" was not mere "dicta," but was the central legal support for the Court's ruling.
That paragraph, which is clearly "dicta," has been repeatedly cited in subsequent cases to rule against Christians and in favor of Secular Humanists.
Its language is "dicta," and its conclusions are erroneous, but it has served as the foundation of secular church-state thinking.

 PrawfsBlawg: When does constitutional dicta become law?
I just think that the Lingle dicta is too strong, and has been repeated too frequently, to just be dismissed out of hand as "mere dicta" by anyone *other than the Supreme Court*.
On the other hand, I don't think the relevant passage is dicta -- it was the explanation the Court gave for why the "substantially advances" test is appropriate in some exactions contexts but not in a straight regulatory setting.
Sep 27, 2005 11:43:03 PM Mark, I agree that the impact on dicta on the lower courts is an interesting and important question.

 "Dicta" in Holy Trinity and Everson   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
First, the statement is not "dicta," and second, even if it were, it could still be a legally binding precedent.
"Dicta" is a personal comment by a judge in his opinion which is a digression from the matter before the court.
The so-called "dicta" in Holy Trinity is ignored not because it is "dicta," but because it shows that the myth of "separation of church and state" is a big lie.

Rather, on appeal was whether the trial court had abused its discretion in deciding instead to proceed through consolidation under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 42.
The Fifth Circuit panel's "noble retreat" lay in acknowledging that it had not decided issues that, in any case, were not properly before it.
He nevertheless was likely pleased to have the Fifth Circuit recognize its dicta as dicta.

 SSRN-Defining Dicta by Michael Abramowicz, Maxwell Stearns   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
While lawyers, legal scholars, and jurists likely assume that they can identify dicta when they see it, a careful analysis that categorizes the range of judicial assertions in need of proper characterization reveals that defining holding and dicta is more complex than the general trend of recent scholarship would suggest.
After critiquing the most influential definitions of holding and dicta, the authors offer and defend their own: A holding consists of those propositions along the chosen decisional path or paths of reasoning that are actually decided, are based upon the facts of the case, and lead to the judgment.
A proposition in a case that is not holding is dicta.

While the Dicta sound simplistic, they represented the rules for successful air combat.
The Dicta were still valid for World War II fighter pilots and even into the Korean War.
Unlike other heroes who took the secrets of their success to their graves, Boelcke left behind his 'Dicta' and a small group of men he had personally tutored.

 Dictum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In common law legal terminology a dictum (plural dicta) is any statement that forms a part of the judgment of a court, in particular a court whose decisions have value as precedent under the doctrine of stare decisis.
Conceptually, dicta are divided into those which form a part of the reason for the decision or ratio decidendi, which are binding as precedent, and those which do not, which are called obiter dicta.

 Law Office of Tim Warriner: Italics and Dicta in Ameline
The Ninth Circuit’s new and improved Ameline decision provides important guidance for defense counsel.
Some of the court’s discussion concerning plain error would seem to limit review to cases, such as Ameline's, where the defendant made no admission to drug quantity and objected to the quantity found by the court.
However, the court writes in what probably would be considered dicta, that “[a]ccordingly, it is the truly exceptional case that will not require remand for resentencing under the new advisory guideline regime.” The italics were used for the purpose of emphasis.

So it is not necessary to read those decisions except as an academic exercise.
But even then there has been much confusion generated by people who have attempted to read and understand 60 year old Supreme Court decisions, in part because they are written using what is known as "dicta" (opinions of the judges in the discussions that ARE NOT part of the final decision).
This makes it difficult for people who do not know this to understand the true LEGAL meaning of the case.
