Suppression of truth.
The legal maxim is of latin origin meaning suppression of truth is an offence. It means knowingly suppressing the truth, when it should have been disclosed in the first place, rightfully makes the contract invalid. Concealment of truth vitiates a contract. Parties are required to present everything with fairness to maintain a fair deal. Concealment of facts intentionally leads to false beliefs. Suppressio Veri is a ground to rescind an agreement or to avoid carrying it to execution.
The concealment of facts regarding the quality of the product, when it was a rather vital information, is enough ground to rescind the agreement between A and B.
Union of India v. Malti Sharma, (2006) 9 SCC 262
The Supreme Court held that a person who suppresses material facts from the Court is guilty of “suppressio veri” and suggestio falsi.
“In deed”, “In fact” or “Actually”.
The literal meaning of “De Facto” is “in deed”, “in fact” or “Actually”. The word “De Facto” is of Latin origin, actually referring to something which does exist in fact, whether it may be recognized by lawful authority or not.
Law does not compel the doing of impossibilities.
This legal maxim is of the latin origin meaning the law does not compel you to do anything vain or impossible. It is a very old maxim that was discussed by Justice Owen in Hughey v. JMS Development, meaning laws do not compel a man to do something he cannot possibly perform. Here, the word “lex” literally means a system of law, “non” means does not, “cogit” means to compel, “ad” means to, and “impossibilia” means impossible.
