Latin Legal Terms

Acquiēscere

Acquiēscere – literally this Latin term means to remain at rest, to agree without protest. It is formed from the word “quiēscere”, which means “to rest”. Nowadays “acquiesce” is related to the term “acquiescence” that could have two different meanings: - It could detail legal action or inaction that binds a person legally even though it was not planned to be such. - Acquiescence also could refer to allowing too much time to pass since you had knowledge of an event which may have allowed you to have the right for initiating legal action against another person, implying that you waive your legal rights to this recourse.
