  • Assets: (1) The property comprising the estate of a deceased person, or (2) the property in a trust account.
  • butterfat: means the fat contained in milk. See Florida Statutes 620.8703
  • Common law: The legal system that originated in England and is now in use in the United States. It is based on judicial decisions rather than legislative action.

  • Equitable: Pertaining to civil suits in "equity" rather than in "law." In English legal history, the courts of "law" could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy. See damages. A separate court of "equity" could order someone to do something or to cease to do something. See, e.g., injunction. In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts
