A party to a case is a person named in a civil case (plaintiff or defendant) or a person named in a criminal case (defendant, witness, officer of the court, etc.). There are… lots of details and nuances and slight variations from state to state. A person can be the primary or real or proper party of a lawsuit; that means they are the one being sued or doing the suing. They can also be an indispensable party, an interested party, a necessary party, or a nominal party. These are all degrees of how involved someone is in a case. Let me attempt an example: Tom and Dick used to be friends, but then Tom took up with Dick's old girlfriend Jane. Dick goes to Tom's apartment and punches him on the nose in front of Jane. Harry owns the apartment building. Tom sues Dick. They are the proper parties of the suit. Jane is a witness and might be a necessary party. Harry wants to recoup the cost of a new door (because Dick broke it down) and is an interested party. No guarantees that this is exact or that the terms would be entirely the same in every jurisdiction.

The "law of the case" is a situation where an appellate court has made a determination on a question of law and remanded the case for retrial. If the case comes before the app…ellate court again after retrial, the point of law determined by the first appellate court may not be appealed again. An appellant does not get to reopen that issue just because the case is once again before an appellate court. That point of law is now the "law of the case" and will govern the case throughout any and all further appeals that may occur. There may be compelling circumstances where a court may permit the issue to be reopened, such as where the initial determination rested on a law later found to be unconstitutional and void.

it means 'and'. not versus. eg. donoghue v stevenson = donoghue and stevenson
The term can refer to a few things, all of which having about the same end result. In general, however, it refers to the termination of a legal action. 1. A Plaintiff in a c…ivil case can voluntarily dismiss the case at any time prior to jury verdict. This might be done if the case does not seem to be going well and the Plaintiff does not wish to risk losing. In many jurisdictions, if a Plaintiff voluntary dismisses a case, he/she/it is allowed to file it one more time as long as the statute of limitations has not expired in the meantime. Typically, if the Plaintiff dismisses and then refiles, he/she/it may be required to pay some or all of the Defendant's court costs incurred in the first action. It will depend upon the jurisdiction as to whether attorney's fees are also recoverable. 2. A judge can dismiss a case. This might be the result of an order on a pre-answer motion, such as a motion to dismiss. That kind of motion often is directed to the manner on which the cause of action was pled rather than to the merits of the case. If the case is dismissed on such a motion due to a pleading defect, the Plaintiff is usually given the chance to re-plead (amend) the cause of action. One glaring exception to that rule is that if the Defendant properly raises a Statute of Limitations defense in a motion to dismiss, and the court grants the motion. If in fact, the Statute of Limitations has expired and there are no factual or legal arguments to support the position that the Statute has been stayed or otherwise held in abeyance, a re-pleading will not be permitted. 3. In a criminal case or in some administrative cases, the State or other governmental entity is the equivalent of the Plaintiff. In those cases, the governmental entity can decide to "drop" (i.e.: Nolle Prosequi) the charges, which is the equivalent of a dismissal. Likewise, the presiding judge may decide early in the proceeding that there is insufficient evidence, and dismiss the charges. Additional Information to #3 above: The judge has the option of Dismissal WITH Prejudice or Dismissal WITHOUT Prejudice. WITH prejudice means that the state is barred from re-filing the same charge against the defendant. WITHOUT prejudice signifies that the state MAY, if it wishes, re-file the same or amended charges again.
Nature is the way things are without any intervention from a human agency. It includes the elements of the natural world such as mountains, trees, animals, or rivers.
Natural means ;ordinary daily things.For example,like my hair is natural, my legs are natural my ears are natural.
Naturalism is the understanding that there is a single, natural world as shown by science, and that we are completely included in it. Naturalism holds that everything we… are and do is connected to the rest of the world and derived from conditions that precede us and surround us. Each of us is an unfolding natural process, and every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause itself. So we are fully caused creatures, and seeing just how we are caused gives us power and control, while encouraging compassion and humility. By understanding consciousness, choice, and even our highest capacities as materially based, naturalism re-enchants the physical world, allowing us to be at home in the universe. Naturalism shows our full connection to the world and others, it leads to an ethics of compassion, and it gives us far greater control over our circumstances. = Connection - Compassion - Control = Connection: Everything we are and do is completely connected to the rest of the world. Our bodies and minds are shaped in their entirety by conditions that precede us and surround us. Each of us is an unfolding, natural process, and every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause itself. We are therefore entirely at home in the physical universe. Compassion: Seeing that we are fully caused creatures - not self-caused - we can no longer take or assign ultimate credit or blame for what we do. This leads to an ethics of compassion and understanding, both toward ourselves and others. We see that there but for circumstances go I. We would have been the homeless person in front of us, the convict, or the addict, had we been given their genetic and environmental lot in life. Control: Understanding how we are caused to behave as we do gives us increased powers of prediction and control. Instead of supposing people can simply will themselves to be otherwise, we concentrate our energies on creating the conditions which promote constructive personal and social change. The ethics of compassion is matched by a practical efficacy based in scientific knowledge. Now, here's a "trapped in the elevator" speech to give you a bit more detail: = - Introducing Naturalism - = Naturalism, in essence, is simply the idea that human beings are completely included in the natural world: there's nothing supernatural about us. Naturalism is based on science as the best, most reliable means for discovering what exists. Science shows that each and every aspect of a human being comes from and is completely connected to the natural world, and is understandable in terms of those connections. The naturalist view of ourselves is of course very different from traditional religious or supernatural understandings, and it has profound implications. We don't have souls that continue after death. Instead, we are fully physical creatures, fully caused to be who we are. We don't have free will in the sense of being able to choose or decide without being fully caused in our choices or decisions. Instead, as individuals we are part of the natural unfolding of the universe in all its amazing complexity. By understanding ourselves as fully caused, and by seeing just how we are caused (by our genetic endowment, upbringing, and social environments), we dramatically enhance our powers of prediction and control, both in our personal lives and in the larger social arena. Naturalism focuses our attention on what works, increasing self-efficacy and encouraging science-based, progressive social policies in areas such as criminal justice, social inequality, behavioral health, and the environment. Also, since we see that we aren't the ultimate originators of ourselves or our behavior, we can't take ultimate credit or blame for what we do. This reduces unwarranted self-righteousness, moral superiority, pride, shame, and guilt. And since we see others as fully caused - for instance substance abusers, criminal offenders, the destitute and homeless - we become less blaming, less punitive and more compassionate and understanding. People don't create themselves, so responsibility for their character and behavior isn't ultimately theirs, but is distributed over the many factors that created them. And after all, were we given their environmental and genetic conditions, we would have become what they are, and acted just as they did: there but for circumstances go I. This insight provides the basis for a naturalistic ethics of empathy and compassion that guides personal behavior and grounds effective social policy. As mentioned above, naturalism is premised on taking science as our way of knowing about the world, not tradition, intuition, sacred texts or pronouncements. By illuminating the causal connections between phenomena, science inevitably unifies what it discovers into a single, natural, multifaceted whole. If we take science seriously with regard to ourselves and our behavior, we are led to the conclusion that human beings are fully included in the natural world, and that we are completely physical creatures. More and more, biology and neuroscience show that the brain and body do everything that the soul was supposed to do. Even consciousness and our higher level capacities for rationality and choice are fully embodied, causal processes. Some might conclude from this that naturalism reduces human beings to mere mechanisms, mere automatons, but this doesn't follow. What follows is that the physical universe has produced, in us, marvelously complex and adaptive organisms, with the capacity for self-reflection, wonder, suffering, and joy. Far from mechanizing humanity, naturalism re-enchants the physical world by showing how consciousness and choice don't involve supernatural processes. They are natural processes, understandable by science. Amazingly enough, physical existence produces all these intricate phenomena quite nicely on its own. By acknowledging our origins in evolution, the naturalist perspective also enhances our feeling of kinship with the other species with which we share this planet, and our desire to sustain and nurture the planet itself. All sentient beings, including humanity, owe their existence to conditions that extend far beyond us in space and time. Seeing this, we find ourselves completely at home in the universe, full-fledged participants in the unfolding natural order.
It means that a legal finding has been made.
it means that they checked the knife and everything about it twice. So it should never have any mistakes. It turned into the logo for case knives today.
It means that the final decision in the case has been rendered and the case is closed.
Nature may refer to the phenomena of the world, or life in general. It also is used as a synonym for the universe.
In Criminal Law
it means the case is over Added: There are SEVERAL types of dismissal. Dismissal WITH prejudice which means the charges cannot be brought again. Dismissal WITHOUT prejudice… which means that the charges CAN be brought again. There is also dismissal for want of prosecution, which means that the government failed to proceed against you in a timely manner or with insufficient information. There is one last possibility that some people often refer to as a "dismissal" but actually isn't, and that is a Nolle Prossequi issued by the prosecutor in which, after examining the facts of the case he was presented with, declines to prosecute. It's important to know which specific type of dismissal you received.
No. When an appellate court hears an appeal from a lower court, it will either affirm (i.e.: approve of) the prior court's decision (not the case), or reverse the prior deci…sion. If the prior decision is affirmed, then the prior holding stands.
In Ralph Waldo Emerson's Nature, Emerson first introduces the concept of "nature" in the first chapter. He sees nature as something that is always there, but not necessarily a…ccessible, just like the stars. The mind is open to the influence of natural things.
