  2. Judicial precedent is not a blanket concept.

    Jurisdiction is one simple matter one should be aware of.

    Legal argument by analogy is not the same thing as argument grounded in legal precedent.

    The best best one can have is persuasive authority rather than precedent in the case of other Common Law jurisdictions.
