I believe you might be referring to ASCE 7-05 Section 12.13.4, "Reduction of Foundation Overturning".

1997 UBC, Section 1621.1, Uplift & Overturning

1997 UBC, allowed a 1/3 reduction when combining uplift and overturning.
Does anyone know if anything similar to this is in IBC, ASCE, CBC?? I haven't found anything.
Thank you,
