Business, Legal & Accounting Glossary
n. an objection to certain questions or testimony during a trial which has been “overruled” by the judge, but the attorney who made the objection announces he/she is “continuing” the objection to all other questions on the same topic or with the same legal impropriety in the opinion of the attorney. Thus a “continuing” objection does not require an objection every time the same question or same subject is introduced. Example: the attorney for the plaintiff (the person suing) begins asking questions about emotional distress, which the defendant’s attorney objects to as “immaterial,” but the judge allows the first questions. The defense attorney states he has a “continuing” objection to all questions about the emotional distress.
