On "refuting"

"I refute (an allegation)"

Can one do that? Surely "refuting" is the result of some judicial process, rather than a personal claim? I may reject or deny or contest an allegation, but some other body has to refute it?

(This post is all my own work. I deliberately consulted no external sources on this definition; that is the point.)

Comments welcome, but I'm afraid I have had to turn moderation back on, because of inappropriate use. Even so, I'll process them as soon as I can.
