California Maxims of Jurisprudence, on equity, seem quasi-religious to me:
Sec. 3512: One must not change his purpose the injury of another.
Sec. 3518: He who has fraudulently dispossessed himself of a thing may be treated as if he still had possession. [OJ was thinking of this one.]
Sec. 3520: No one should suffer by the act of another. [Do unto others....]
Sec. 3527 The laws helps the vigilant, before those who sleep on their rights. [God helps those....]
[This one, however, contradicts religion, I believe.]
Sec. 3530: That which does not appear to exist is to be regarded as if it did not exist.
