The latin legal terms ‘pro tempore’ and ‘Non est factum

April 24, 2011
The  latin legal terms 'pro tempore' and 'Non est factum'  are discussed below: Word : Pro tempore Meaning: "for the time being". This phrase is often used to describe a person who acts as a placeholder in the absence of a superior.  Legislative bodies can have one or more pro tempore. Example: In the absence of the president and vice president a president pro tempore may be chosen. Pronunciation: Pro - proh Tem -  tem Po    - paw, -puh Re   -re, ree Word : Non est factum Meaning: "it is not *my+ deed". It can also be referred as “not my act”. This is a denial by a person that he was actually involved in some action or dealings. It is a doctrine in contract law that allows a signing party to escape performance of the agreement. A claim of non est factum means that the signature on the contract was signed by mistake, without knowledge of its meaning, but was not done so negligently. A successful plea would make the contract void ab initio. Example: A person who signs away the deed to a house, thinking that the document signed was only a guarantee for another person's debt, might be able to plead non est factum in a court and on that basis get the court to void the contract. Pronunciation: Non - nan Est   - ae, aest Factum - fak-t&m, fac tumNon - nan Factum - fak-t&m, fac tum
