Wash. S. Ct.: “Within X days” – before, or after?

This week, Washington state’s supreme court decided Nelson v. P.S.C., Inc., which turned on whether a state statute’s reference to “within three years of the marriage” required a specified event to occur:

  • during the three years before the marriage; or
  • no later than the three years after the marriage.

The details aren’t important, only that the case had to be litigated — thanks, legislative drafters!
