Did the court apply statutory law, case law or both in reaching its decision?

In litigation, lawyers need to rely on case law to support the outcome they are asking
the court take. Lawyers will often “brief” a case to obtain a better understanding of the
case. In other words, lawyers will use a specific format to outline the most important
points in a court’s decision. This activity will also assist you in understanding the cases
discussed in this class.
