Sources of SUT law

If you're trying to figure out where to find the law governing a particular issue, consider that all of these sources should be considered:

US Constitution

US Statutes

US Courts

State Constitutions

State Statutes

State Regulations

State Administrative Statements (bulletins, rulings, pronouncements, etc)
Unpublished enforcement positions (what the auditor learned about in training)

State Courts

Parish/County/District/City Laws

So the message here is that if you're just relying on a reading of state statutes and regulations off of the Web site, you're missing out on a whole bunch of important stuff.
