statute. Your supervisor has asked you to write a summary of the
circumstances under which the judge should rely on existing case law to
determine the intent and purpose of a statute.

case law that apply, does the court have any discretion in how to apply the
law to your case? 2. TCO 2) Given the current economic climate nationwide and locally, the state of Delmarva would like to impose a higher tax on out-of-state

companies. The reason behind the legislature?s enactment of this law is to
protect the local firms from out-of-state competition because they are
losing local business, which is affecting the state?s economy.
