Headword: *paragrafh/
Adler number: pi,319
Translated headword: paragraphe, special plea
Vetting Status: high
When someone says that the matter about which there is a [sc. legal] complaint was previously brought into a jurycourt, and a verdict has been reached about it. And for this reason he says that a judgement about it should not be arrived at; but [it is] especially [necessary] to read the laws to the dikasts, who frequently do not agree to give judgement on the same things. But he talks about the matter itself at the same time, demonstrating to the dikasts that those who had served as dikasts in the past had cast their votes justly and in accordance with the laws. And this is a paragraphe. Also [sc. it can arise] in that [sc. kind of] lawsuit, about which nothing is determined in the laws, nor is there anyone to introduce it [into court],[1] as happens in other suits; for it has been prescribed for each of the other suits in the magistracies that some person introduces it [into court]. So a paragraphe procedure is allowed also to those whose complaint is of this kind, [i.e.] one on which legislation has made no provision.
