    Fair Vs. fairly

    Dear English language teacher:
    I know that fair is used in some fixed expressions to mean in a fair manner like, fight fair, play fair, but what about the following sentence?

    Should I say “he didn’t judged fair or fairly
    Thanks

    You could say "He didn't judge fairly".
