Othello’s error refers to an error of judgment when verdicts are made on behalf of preconceived notions and by disregarding any fact or possibilities that may go against such presumed bias.
In the play, Othello considers Desdemona’s reaction to Cassio’s assumed death as a proof of her unfaithfulness. He already thinks they were lovers and does not consider that his wife might be shocked and hurt by the accusation and the news of the death of only person who could absolve her truly.
