I supplied the specific NEC rule that answers the question.
When asked by the Attorneys, during the trial for the reasons why a family was burned to death because of a loose cord cap on a cord that was not as long as required by the UL Standard, the answer of less than 3 feet will lead to the next question:
Who replaced the cord?
Just the facts and the way in which I interpret the rules both for new and existing installations and replacements.
