A delegate cannot further delegate.
This Latin maxim means that a person to whom a power is delegated cannot further delegate that power. That person cannot sub-delegate that power to someone else. No sub-delegation can be done in a contract of principle-agent without the knowledge and consent of the principle. This principle is often used in administrative or constitutional law.
If a person has delegated ‘A’ to execute a will after his death, therefore, ‘A’ cannot further delegate this power to another person. If he does so, he will be delegating the power or authority, which was delegated to him.
A thing adjudged
The legal maxim is of latin origin meaning a matter or thing that has already been judicially decided on the basis of its merits and the same matter cannot be litigated between the two parties again. The maxim is of the belief that for one particular claim between litigants, one judicial contest is enough and reexamination of the same matter is not in the interest of the society. With the rapidly increasing pressure on the judiciary with rising judicial work, attending to a particular matter to one single contest is a reasonable restriction adopted.
A promise not having any consideration, and hence not enforceable by the law. In Latin it means “naked promise” as it is not covered adequately by the aspect of consideration.
Where there is a right, there is a remedy.
This is a legal maxim, which means that where there is a right, there is a remedy. To get a legal remedy, a person should possess a legal right. Whenever the law gives a right to a person or prohibits an injury, then it also provides a remedy. So to sue in the court of law, one should establish his right and its violation.
