I'm trying to find out What is the difference between “Statutes” and “Case Law”?
Statutes are created by the legislature and are primary law. Their scope is limited only by that of the body creating them (state or federal government).
Case law is the application of law to an action brought before the court, the scope of which depends upon the court which issued the decision.
The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
if a statute says for x to happen there has to be a warrant served to allow it.does this type of statute allow for judges to decide?it sounds pretty straight forward to me.
Statutory law is that law established by the legislature.
Case law is how statutory law has been interpreted by the appellate courts.
