Overrules Block

Overrules Block

Where Is It?

The Overrules block is located in the exceptions drawer of the Blawx toolbox.

What Does It Do?

The Overrules block is used to specify that conclusions reached by one section of law overrule the conclusions reached by another section of law, when those conclusions are opposed.

Technical Details

The Overrules block is a statement block, and can be stacked with other statement blocks. It accepts two internal inputs, both of which are expecting a statement selector. The order of the statement selectors is significant. The first section named is superior, the second section named is inferior.


For complicated exception relationships, it can be helpful to make an overrules statement conditional on certain other things being true. This can be accomplished by using the overrules statement as the conclusion of a rule.
