how does a court invent a new doctrine which does not respect the principles of previous decisions exactly? You can't claim precedent applies and simultaneously set a new precedent. If precedent solely applied there would be no new precedents.
I reckon if We don't like a precedent We can enact new legislation defining some new positive obligation for people using our authority to coerce or compel anyone or anything at anytime thereby overturning any precedent.
