erie - #8

Story says that a court decision should not be considered law but just as 
evidence that there is law - ie. statute.  Story also says that a state cannot 
trump "general law".  However, Brandeis states that a court should apply both 
statute and case law.  Brandeis also states that courts should apply the 
applicable state law.
