9781413310375: Nolo's Plain-English Law Dictionary

Learn the language of the law, without the legalese!

Open the average law dictionary and chances are you'll feel more confused than before you read a word. Nolo's Plain-English Law Dictionary is different. From ""abrogate"" to ""zero tape"", we've cut down on the Latin and defined common (and some not-so-common) terms you can really use to understand and access the law.

Set aside those dusty, outdated law dictionaries! Written for the 21st century, this essential reference contains complete definitions of the legal terms you need today. If you're a law student, paralegal, accountant, small business owner or librarian -- anyone whose work or life touches the law -- this fully up-to-date A to Z guide puts access to the law into your hands.

Nolo's Plain-English Law Dictionary contains 3,800 plain-English legal definitions, including many newly coined terms you'll find online and off, such as ""typosquatting"" and ""patent troll"". Of course, if you need definitions for legal standards -- even when they're in Latin -- you'll find those here too. Plus, find a copy of the Constitution of the United States of America for your reference in the pages following the complete list of definitions.

From the Publisher:

Ten Legal Terms You've Never Heard Of

From Nolo's Plain English Law Dictionary

1. Coho. A person who own a house with an unrelated person.

2. Commercial frustration. An unforeseen and uncontrollable event that excuses a party to a contract from performing his or her duties under that contract.

3. Dynasty trust. A trust designed to pass down family wealth for many generations while avoiding transfer taxes (estate tax and generation-skipping tax) to the greatest extent possible.

4. Heir hunter. A business that searches for relatives entitled to inherit from the estate or trust of a deceased person. Heir hunters often refuse to provide details unless the heir agrees to pay a fee of one-tenth to one-third of the amount that`s eventually inherited. Probate courts sometimes declare these arrangements invalid too unfair to enforce.

5. Owelty. Under common law, an amount that one co-owner must pay to another after a lawsuit to partition real estate, so that each co-owner receives equal value from the property.

6. Patent troll. Disparaging term for someone who sues for patent infringement but who does not make or sell any product using the patented technology.

7. Puffery. Exaggeration of the good points of a product, a business, real property, and the prospects for future rise in value, profits and growth. Since a certain amount of puffery can be expected of any salesperson, it cannot be the basis of a lawsuit for fraud or breach of contract unless egregious or an outright lie.

8. Rhadamanthine. Strict and inflexible in the application of the law; sometimes used to describe a judge.

9. Rule of doubt. The rule under which the U.S. Copyright Office allows object code to be deposited in connection with a computer program registration. It means that the code may not qualify for copyright protection. In essence, the Copyright Office is saying, "We will let you deposit object code, but since we can't read or understand it, we won't commit ourselves as to its copyrightability."

10. Trust protector. A person or company with the job of keeping an eye on a trustee and making sure the trust's purposes are fulfilled.
