Definition of RIENS PASSA PAR LE FAIT


RIENS PASSA PAR LE FAIT

The name of a plea; it signifies that
nothing pass-ed by the deed; for example, when a deed is acknowledged in court,
a man cannot plead non est factum, because the act was done in court, which
cannot be denied; but when the deed has been acknowledged in a court not having
jurisdiction, the party may avoid the effect or operation of the deed by
pleading riens passa par le fait, for this plea does not impeach the court
where it was acknowledged. Bac. Ab. Evidence F; 1 Gilb. ET. by Lofft, 326.
