Query asked by Lance Armstrong Costello



I am representing myself in a civil case and have appealed a lower court’s decision to the NH Supreme Court. The reason that I am reaching out to you is to obtain a definition of a legal term as it would relate to my appeal.

The NHSC has sent me concerning my case a terse legal term, That term is: “not argued”.  Please explain the significance of that term in the appeal process,

Thank you.

Answer given by

: Not argued means the contention is not raised at the time of hearing before the competent Authority . Normally the Appellate Forum will not entertain a arguments on facts if it is not argued before the lower Authorities, however if it is pure question of law the Competent court is bound to entertain . Unless one study the facts of the case it may be difficult to explain under what circumstances the Competent Court has passed the order .
