Acquiescence Legal Terms

The tolerance of a delay shall not be considered as a waiver of such a delay, even if that tolerance lasts longer. For example, a new brewing company is concerned that the proposed label for its beer will infringe on its competitor`s brand. It submits the label to the advocate general of its competitor, who does not oppose its use. The new company submits an application to the Patent and Trademark Office for the registration of the label as a trademark and begins to use the label on the market. The competitor does not file an opposition with the Patent Office. A few years later, the competitor sued the new company for violating its brand and demanded the accounting of the new company`s profits for the years in which it used the label. A court will reject the accounting because the competitor tacitly authorized the use of the label by consent. However, the competitor could be entitled to an injunction excluding the merged entity from any further use of its trademark if it is so similar to the competitor`s label that it constitutes an infringement. Tolerance, contracts.

Implied consent given by one or both parties to any proposal, clause, condition, judgment or action. 2. If a party is obliged to choose between an overriding right and a testamentary disposition, his consent to a state of affairs which indicates an election, if he was aware of his rights, shall constitute prima facie evidence of such a choice.

To tolerate the actions of an agent or representative who has assumed this character will be tantamount to expressing authority. 2 Bouv. Inst. No. 1309; Kent, Com. 478; History of equation § 255; 4 W. C. C. R. 559; 6 Miss R. Sec. 193; 1 John Cas.

There is no effective oversight by Congress, as we can see with the consent of the Intelligence and Justice Committees. A new German book reveals that prominent post-war German leaders hid their Nazi past with the approval of the U.S. government. Although the doctrine of tolerance is not generally found in legal law, it is well supported by case law.

A common context in which consent is collected is when there is a dispute or disagreement over the location of a property line, followed by a longer period during which the parties respect a property line. Even if it later turns out that the actual boundary of the property was in a different location, the long-term tolerance of the lost line can cause it to become enforceable as a legal property line. [2] An example of the right of tolerance occurred in a dispute between the State of Georgia and the State of South Carolina, in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Georgia could no longer claim an island in the Savannah River despite the 1787 Beaufort Treaty to the contrary. [3] The court said Georgia knowingly allowed South Carolina to connect the island as a peninsula to its own coastline by dumping sand from dredging and then levying property taxes on it for decades. Georgia thus lost the peninsula that had become an island by its own tolerance, although the treaty gave it all the islands of the river. This may be aimed at intimidating and making it tolerant, but the effect has unfortunately been different. Pete Cayce initially revolted at the pressure of his attention, subordination and tolerance. Tolerance is not the same as laches, that is, not doing what the law requires to protect one`s rights, in circumstances that induce or disadvantage the accused.

Tolerance refers to inaction during the performance of an act. In the example above, the fact that the competitor`s general counsel does not object to the use of the label and the registration of the label as a trademark with the Patent and Trademark Office constitutes a tolerance. Not to sue the company only after several years since the label was first used is a laugh. In the law, tolerance exists when one person knowingly observes without opposing the violation of his rights, while another person acts unknowingly and without malice in a manner incompatible with his rights. [1] Due to tolerance, the person whose rights are violated may lose the opportunity to assert a legal claim against the infringer, or may not be able to obtain an injunction against ongoing violations. The doctrine ends with a form of “permission” resulting from silence or passivity over a longer period of time. The Latin power`s approval of La Paz was particularly blatant.
