Binding precedent is precedent that must be applied or followed. Persuasive precedent includes cases decided by other lower courts, or higher courts from other geographic jurisdictions, or secondary sources (legal encyclopedias, treatises or academic law reviews, etc.). Persuasive precedent may or may not be applied or followed.
Which is the correct sentence? A- I couldn't tell who was on the other side of the door. B- I couldn't tell whom was on the other side of the door.
Correct answer: A- I couldn't tell who was on the other side of the door. Who is used for the object of a verb or preposition. If you can replace the word with "he" or "she," use who.
