Re: Leveling Nuts >> Waterstops

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Well, if it doesn't apply to leveling nuts it probably doesn't apply to waterstops.  But if there were 2 similar houses with similar basements, in the same jurisdiction, and, all other things being equal, the inspector required waterstops in one basement and not in the other, wouldn't it then apply?

Actually, the Equal Protection Clause is not in the Constituion itself, it is in the 14th amendment. 
And I'm not sure it extends to leveling nuts.
It prohibits states from denying any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.  In other words, the laws of a state must treat an individual in the same manner as others in similar conditions and circumstances. A violation would occur, for example, if a state prohibited an individual from entering into an employment contract because he or she was a member of a particular race. The equal protection clause is not intended to provide "equality" among individuals or classes but only "equal application" of the laws. The result  of a law is not relevant so long as there is no discrimination in its application.
