Why must capital cases only be judged during the day?  If the court wants to convict in a capital case, they need to wait until the following day.  Where is that law derived from?  Based on that law, cases can’t begin on a Friday – the gemara explains why.  In the context of that discussion the gemara explains that capital punishment doesn’t override Shabbat.  Several kal vachomers are suggested regarding what types of things could possibly override Shabbat, and whether or not they do is clarified.
