"The initial occurrence of cancer in a patient." - this is a noun usage - is this correct? If so, it belongs under a "Noun phrase" section. — Paul G 15:37, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Contradicts "abuse of discretion" entry
This article states "In law, de novo is the most rigorous of the three standards by which common law court decisions are reviewed on appeal; the other two are clear error and abuse of discretion."
yet the entry on "abuse of discretion" linked within indicates "abuse of discretion" is the most rigorous: "Abuse of discretion is the most rigorous of the three standards by which common law court decisions are reviewed on appeal"
since only one can logically be the "most rigorous", I (though I know nothing of law in particular) thinks there's a mistake with either this entry of the "abuse of discretion" one :) 220.127.116.11 00:48, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
