ooked or not consideredThis is an issue of law if the judge has not considered the evidence and it is admissible and relevant. He could have rejected the evidence on those issues, but not specifically referred to this, although he should have. However the judge does not need to rule on every bit of evidence as to weight and use in his decision. If he has not mentioned a minor piece, that is common. If major issues in evidence have been overlooked, or not mentioned, that could be a ground for appeal. It's often the importance of the evidence in the case which is an issue which the judge will consider.
