1 - 0 if Black has declared his or her resignation; 0 - 1 if White has declared his or her resignation.
I feel, however, that this law is drafted from the wrong perspective.
I think it ought to say:
Why?5. 1 b. The game is lost by the player who declares he resigns. This immediately ends the game.
I had a game a few months ago in a Richmond event, in which BOTH players resigned.
If I had applied the FIDE Law as read, surely then I ought to have scored the game 1 - 1 ?!
As it was an ungraded and unrated game, and I was feeling kindly disposed, I scored it 0.5 - 0.5.
However, I think the correct result in such a situation is 0 - 0. If it had been graded and/or rated, I would have consulted higher authority before submitting the results, but for pairings on the day, I would have treated it as 0 - 0.
Any thoughts from others?
