Definition: Exception




What is the dictionary definition of Exception?

Dictionary Definition


n.

  1. a formal objection during trial (“We take exception, or simply, “exception”)” to the ruling of a judge on any matter, including rulings on objections to evidence, to show to a higher court that the lawyer did not agree with the ruling. In modern practice, it is not necessary “to take exception” to a judge’s adverse ruling, since it is now assumed that the attorney against whom the ruling is made objects. This also keeps the transcribed record from being cluttered with shouts of “exception.”
  2. in contracts, statutes or deeds, a statement that some matter is not included.
