Re: Comparable position

Depending upon the context, comparable means just that comparable.

The party urging the court to find comparability will argue that only basic requirements need be met; the opposing lawyer made a big deal about the color of the proposed comparables fingernail polish to defeat a finding of comparability,--if the stakes are high enough.
