Terms Used In Michigan Laws > Chapter 500 > Act 218 of 1956 > Chapter 33

  • Appeal: A request made after a trial, asking another court (usually the court of appeals) to decide whether the trial was conducted properly. To make such a request is "to appeal" or "to take an appeal." One who appeals is called the appellant.
  • Automobile insurance: means insurance for automobiles which provides any of the following:

    (i) Security required pursuant to section 3101. See Michigan Laws 500.3303

  • Commissioner: means the director. See Michigan Laws 500.102
  • Contract: A legal written agreement that becomes binding when signed.
  • 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
