DAF DISCUSSIONS - BAVA BASRA 96

Barry Epstein asked:

Why do we go with Shmuel over Rav re monetary matters. I remember that Eruvin explained re Beis Hillel over Beis Shammai but have never seen anything re these two. Who decided, and why?

Barry Epstein, Dallas, USA

The Kollel replies:

Shmuel served in the official capacity as a Dayan, a judge, and therefore it is assumed that his understanding and master of the depth of monetary matters was unsurpassed.
