Terms Used In Missouri Laws 526.170

  • Answer: The formal written statement by a defendant responding to a civil complaint and setting forth the grounds for defense.
  • Injunction: An order of the court prohibiting (or compelling) the performance of a specific act to prevent irreparable damage or injury.
  • Testimony: Evidence presented orally by witnesses during trials or before grand juries.

After the answer is filed, a motion may be made at any time in term to dissolve the injunction, and upon such motion the parties may introduce testimony to support the petition and answer, and the court shall decide the motion upon the weight of testimony, without being bound to take the answer as true.
