When a federal court makes a ruling called a "holding" it is said to be common law, so I would say that the common law derives from the will of a federal judge or court. Does a federal court determine the will of mankind? It can't because it is a fiction. So that must be common law within the realm of a fiction.
I CAN"T HEAR A FICTION. I am a Man. Unlike things ought not to be joined.
The common law of Men is custom and usage, traditions.
Thank you for your thoughts. We haven't heard from you in a while.
