City of San Jose v. Super. Ct., S218066

Interpretation of a statute (California): Including (stat. interpret.):

In statutory drafting, the term “includes” is ordinarily one “of enlargement rather than limitation.”  (Ornelas v. Randolph (1993) 4 Cal.4th 1095, 1101.)  “The ‘statutory definition of a thing as “including” certain things does not necessarily place thereon a meaning limited to the inclusions.’ ”  (Flanagan v. Flanagan (2002) 27 Cal.4th 766, 774.)

(Cal. S.C., March 2, 2017, City of San Jose v. Super. Ct., S218066).

Interprétation d'une loi au sens formel. La notion de "includes", "including" n'est pas limitative, de sorte que la loi peut s'appliquer à d'autres situations encore.
