It's not entirely clear that the last sense is much different from the first. However, I believe that in legal documents, such tends to mean what was just described and not what was just described or something like it. -dmh 20:52, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)
I've noticed some people use "such" in the way that "suchlike" would be used. Possibly this is recent American usage, since I've never heard it in British English. Anyway, the definition for this usage - a person, a thing, people or things like the one or ones already mentioned - has a couple of problems: firstly, it should just be a link to "suchlike" rather than a copy of that definition; and secondly, only the very last quotation from 2000 is actually that meaning. The others should be (re)moved. 184.108.40.206 11:24, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
