"A Fortiori"


Lat.: with stronger reason. An inference that because a certain conclusion or fact is true, then the same reasoning makes it even more certain that a second conclusion is true. EXAMPLE: Dan is accused of aiding in a bank robbery in which all of the participants were over six feet tall. One suspect has already been cleared by police because he is only five feet six inches. Since Dan is only five feet two inches, a fortiori he could not have participated in the robbery and will also be cleared. Source: Barron's Dictionary of Legal Terms, Steven H.
