"Not another one!"
-- Minerva McGonagall (OP19)

Gave the Hogwarts High Inquisitor (Dolores Umbridge) “supreme authority” over all punishments at Hogwarts.

  • Decree Twenty-five gave Umbridge the ability to overrule other teachers on matters of discipline (OP19)
  • Umbridge went to Fudge to get more control after Dumbledore allowed the Gryffindor Quidditch team to reform after she disbanded it  (OP19)
  • Once Umbridge had the power to overrule both Dumbledore and McGonagall, she banned Harry and the Weasley Twins from playing Quidditch "ever again" after they fought with Draco Malfoy after a match (OP19).
