UNIFORMITY

UVTA ยง 13. UNIFORMITY OF APPLICATION AND CONSTRUCTION.

This [Act] shall be applied and construed to effectuate its general purpose to make uniform the law with respect to the subject of this [Act] among states enacting it.

JayNote
This section effectively allows litigants to cite to decisional law from other enacting jurisdictions in support or in opposition to an interpretation of the UVTA. Barring an important interest specific to a particular state, courts should typically rule in conformity with the majority rule of other states on particular issues, assuming that majority rule makes at least minimal sense.
