[QUOTE]\nCite for what ? You never heard about the common law ? \n\n\nYes it is.\n\n\nBecause that is the law.[/QUOTE]\n\n\n"Common law", by definition, is unwritten. There is no law that is\nthe common law. The term refers to a system of laws based on case\nlaw, previous rulings, and usage.\n\nWritten laws are "statute law". An act is only illegal if it is\nprohibited by statute law.\n\nWhen you are asked for a cite of the law, you are being asked to cite\nthe statute where the law was enacted. Absent a written law that\nrequires defective items to be returnable, a retailer need not accept\na defective item for return.\n\nNow...where's your cite of a statutory law on this subject?
