Grundlegend ist dabei die Unterscheidung zwischen Rechtsaussagesätzen der Rechtsdogmatik und durch sie legitimierten rechtlichen Leitsätzen. Sie ermöglicht eine Verifizierung des Inhalts dieser Leitsätze und grundsätzliche Aussagen über ihre Wirkkraft. Auf diese Weise können wesentliche Streitfragen des Eilrechtsschutzes, etwa die Voraussetzungen der Aussetzungsentscheidung, durch ein konsistentes homogenes Entscheidungsprogramm ausgeräumt werden.
