To be cast on the other pan of the scale.
Can anyone help me with this one?
Re: To be cast on the other pan of the scale.
Welcome to the forums.
The personification of Justice carries a scale in which the evidence is balanced against the truth, which symbolizes the impartiality of the law >> http://tinyurl.com/2hgnlq.
To be cast into the other pan of the scale = taken from one pan in the scale and put into the other.
More context is really needed to decide exactly what is being meant.
