If the conclusion the court comes to is to clarify a law, they write a formal decision called a precedent. For example, in the 50’s children were not allowed to sue their parents. In the 70’s the precedent was challenged and thrown out, and thus, a new precedent was created.Bills and Resolutions are intermediate steps to a precedentState laws are called statutes. This is a faster way to change the law, taking approximately three months. The legislature passes state laws on everything, definitions of crimes and rules. They arevoted on and signed by the governor. When a city council makes a city law, it is called an ordinance.Administrative agencies are set up by the legislature to provide specialization to areas, these are referred to as administrative regulations. A few examples of these agencies are the Departmentof Labor and Industries, or the Port of Seattle.Legal rules have three characteristics- Moral Judgment: we know there is something wrong with a crime, such as murder. It is wrong to intentionally kill someone who is not harming others. This idea is relatively universal in criminal and civil cases. Sometimes referred to in custody cases- what is in the best interest of the child? It is hard to pass laws on moral topics that are divided, such as abortion- Common Sense: this is present is most laws, murder and shoplifting are both crimes, but for obvious reasons are punished differently. We know there is a difference in the degree of the crime- Not exact: there can be some gray area in the law. For example, knowing how much force is “reasonable”, how do we determine this?Dawson refers to three different theories of law- Natural Law: AKA The Law of What is Right, it doesn’t have to be written down, but is not universal, “killing people based on religion”=wrong- Positive Law: AKA
