a taxonomy of case law

Coppertop and I have been hard at work--well, OK, maybe not "hard" at work, maybe more like "occasionally barely" at work--on a comprehensive taxonomy of American legal claims. Surprisingly, it appears that nearly all claims fall into one of three categories:
  1. Mine! No Mine!
  2. I didn't do it!
  3. Make him stop!
We are still trying to determine what these categories say about the development and applicability of the legal system.
