  1. external validation;
  2. it should prove safe and effective in its goal;
  3. it should have limited or harmless unintended consequences;
  4. it should benefit large fractions of the population in a substantive way, perhaps even against vigorous initial opposition.

As a result it should only be reversed or violated in rare instances because it is such a great judicial achievement. The passage of time should add to its external validation and accumulate evidence of benefit.

In Classical Athens, a five-year statute of limitations was established for all cases except homicide and the prosecution of non-constitutional laws.
