Practice Acts Annotated Alphabetically. The special use herein of the simple of a Star (*) makes it feasible to annotate alphabetically the precise point of reported New York case by means of a headnote or Headline and a subnote or Subllowed by a Reading Note. Every Headline is made from the text of the Section ated and is arranged in logical sequence. Every Subline indexes the subject matter Reading Note, and is arranged alphabetically. The Headline and the Subline with ading Note, taken together, state completely the precise point decided, and furnish logical analysis and an alphabetical index. The use of such device marks a distinct e in the art of annotating statutes by avoiding the serious defect, heretofore in all statutory annotations, of annotating the same or closely related matters both affirmative and negative headings, like "Particulars granted" and "Parrs not granted," of dividing contrary views of the same or similar facts, even of rating conflicting cases on precisely the same point, and of requiring the lawyer ad all the cases under both headings to find all the law. Such a division of matter ssarily sacrifices accuracy, clearness and conciseness, as well as time and efficiency, is never justifiable. Such a defect is caused by using both affirmative and negative ings; it may be avoided and all related matters be annotated under one heading, using only affirmative headings and by using the Star (*) to denote the negative. herein every heading or Headline is affirmative, like "Particulars granted"; the ative is denoted by the Star (*), placed before the case cited, which means, reading Sot" into the Headline, "Particulars not granted." For illustration, all unstarred es show what particulars are granted, and all starred cases show what particulars "not" granted.
