A complete list of the legal terms and definitions every attorney, paralegal, and law student needs to know.
In litigation, money paid to the court before the final determination of the parties’ financial obligations. The money may be paid in by a defendant who disputes the debt with which he was charged; the money may be paid by a third party that doesn’t know to whom the money will ultimately be paid but does not claim the money for himself; or the rent money a tenant deposits with the court to avoid eviction while the dispute is with the court.
