A concise statement of the holding of a case, appended to a section of constitution or code of statutes, showing the application of such or a similar section in an actual case. A term sometimes applied to the several propositions of law appearing in a section of a digest of case law. A word of art and of the profession for one of the articles in an annotated series of law reports which follows the report of a case of interest and importance and treats a point or points of the case exhaustively on the case authorities. The best illustration of the meaning of the word in the latter aspect is found in the annotations in American Law Reports.
