In this paper we discuss a heuristically controlled approach to combining reasoning with cases and reasoning with rules. Our task is interpretation of under-defined terms that occur in legal statutes (like the Internal Revenue Code) where certain terms must be applied to particular cases even though their meanings are not defined by the statute and the statutory rules are unclear as to scope and meaning. We describe this problem, known as statutory interpretation, provide examples of it… Expand
An Exception Handling of Rule-Based Reasoning Using Case-Based Reasoning

  • 2002
TLDR
The central idea of the model proposed in this paper is to represent the exception of a rule as a case, and to utilize the case for a solution to a problem, and then to search the case memory to retrieve a case which violates the conclusion of arule. Expand
Combining Case-Based and Model-Based Reasoning for Predicting the Outcome of Legal Cases
TLDR
An algorithm called IBP that combines case-based and model-based reasoning for an interpretive CBR application, predicting the outcome of legal cases and has higher accuracy compared to standard inductive and instance-based learning algorithms. Expand
CABARET: Rule Interpretation in a Hybrid Architecture
TLDR
A system CABARET (CAse-BAsed REasoning Tool) is described that provides a domain-independent shell that integrates reasoning with rules and reasoning with previous cases in order to apply rules containing ill-defined terms. Expand
An approach to legal reasoning based on a hybrid decision-support system
Abstract This paper describes argument structures to generate plausible explanations for the conclusions reached by rule-based reasoning (RBR), and provides a means of integrating with case-basedExpand
Case-Based Reasoning and Model-Based Knowledge Acquisition
This chapter outlines two different yet complementary approaches to enhance cognitive adequacy in the process of knowledge engineering: model-based knowledge acquisition and case-based reasoning.Expand
Building Explanations from Rules and Structured Cases
Abstract A central task underlying many of the activities of attorneys is inferring the legal consequences of a given set of facts. GREBE (GeneratoR of Exemplar-Based Explanations) is a system thatExpand
Improving Rule-Based Systems Through Case-Based Reasoning
TLDR
A novel architecture is presented for combining rule-based and case-based reasoning, and the result that this performance was better than what could be achieved with the rules alone illustrates the capacity of the architecture to improve on the rule- based system it starts with. Expand
Rules and Precedents as Complementary Warrants
TLDR
A model of the complementarity of rules and precedents in the classification task, characterized by impartiality, is described, which found GREBE's performance was found to be as good or slightly better than the performance of law students on the same task. Expand
Case-based reasoning and its implications for legal expert systems
TLDR
CBR can supplement rule-based expert systems, improving their abilities to reason about statutory predicates, solve problems efficiently, and explain their results, and contribute to the design of intelligent legal data retrieval systems and improve legal document assembly programs. Expand
Relevance rule based reasoning

  • 1996
TLDR
A new form of knowledge, the relevance rule (R-rule), is introduced, which represents knowledge about relevant relationship between attributes and enables the unification of case base reasoning and rule based reasoning in a single reasoning paradigm. Expand
