On Failure of Information Processing Infrastructure

Any time the failure of a segment of the state information processing infrastructure impinges on the ability of a decision-making employee of the state to fulfill his responsibilities, and to determine what constitutes lawful conduct, the individual is to exercise his own judgement such that he can reasonably expect his conduct to not result in the abridgement of the rights of others.   Provided he exercises his judgement in good will, he cannot be held accountable for any eventualities solely on the basis of that eventuality resulting in some way from his decisions during an information processing failure.

Misrepresentation of a properly operating information processing system as malfunctioning, and deliberate causation of malfunction with intent to misrepresent the malfunction as unintentional, are crimes.
