The fourth alternative is the correct one. The judge should cite at least one precedent, but can cite several, that is to say, an unlimited number of precedents. In the simplest cases, where the case law is sufficiently well-known, the judge cites one or more of the preceding, as the situation may be. In more complex cases, the judge can contemplate some more specific to the case-law of the higher courts of justice. If it is the high court of himself by judging, it may be necessary to create precedent, that is to say, to give a constitutional interpretation that applies to the case. In any case, there is no limit of procedure that a judge can use, which limits the interpretations is the complexity of each case.
