In this paper a not too unrealistic example of analogical case-based reasoning is presented first. Then this example is analysed with the help of an existing model of case-based reasoning. After that the model is extended with a few more complex logical mechanisms known from general. theories of legal argumentation. This extension turns out to allow for a number of new patterns of reasoning on analogy, examples of which are presented informally. Then a number of other existing approaches to case-based reasoning are briefly discussed. It turns out that these approaches do not deal satisfactorily with the reasoning patterns uncovered in this paper.
