Does anybody think that many "laws" get there by way of "implied" and "intended" precedents ?
UCC, § 1-201. General Definitions.
(b)(27) "Person" means an individual, corporation, business trust, estate, trust, partnership, limited liability company, association, joint venture, government, governmental subdivision, agency, or instrumentality, public corporation, or any other legal or commercial entity.
Person: “In law, man and person are not exactly-synonymous terms.” Bouvier's Law Dictionary, 1856, 1 Bouv. Inst. n. 137.
“...not every human being is a person..." Black's Law Dictionary, 4th ed. 1957 & 1968, p.1300.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
