Great rule rummaging by Inrng regarding Alex Rasmussen’s three Whereabouts errors. As you may know if you follow this blog, although I don’t like many rules I find it even worse when they aren’t followed. Especially by the organizations who write them. In my experience this often isn’t even intentional, organizations simply don’t know their own rules very well. At any rate, it’s worth a read.
One note, There is some confusion whether or not the last sentence of rule 110 actually trumps the first sentence or only refers to the middle part. To me it seems the intention was that the UCI primacy applies to the middle part, the “if not” scenario. Hence why it refers to “as of that date”, which is a date mentioned in the “if not” scenario.
But this is a typical example of poorly written rules which leave them open to interpretation. Organizations often do this in order to give themselves wiggle room. However, under administrative law, wordings are usually interpreted against whoever drafted them, so if you take this to court you have a pretty good chance – provided of course that the court is unbiased.
