In the same jurisdiction, decisions of the higher courts are kept into consideration. Cases
from both the same jurisdiction and the higher court are taken is mandatory authority.
Example: Arizona trial would have to adhere to the statements released by the Arizona
Supreme court and Arizona courts of appeals, and it is not bound to work as per the statements of

th
circuit. (Johnston, 2019)
