actual notice


actual notice
Express information of a fact, as well as circumstances from which an inference of notice is clearly justified. 39 Am J1st Notice § 4. "However closely actual notice may in many instances approximate knowledge, there may be actual notice without knowledge." Dunlap v Gibson, 83 Kan 757, 112 P 598. The words do not always mean in law what in metaphysical strictness they import; they more often mean knowledge of facts and circumstances sufficiently pertinent in character to enable reasonably cautious and prudent persons to investigate and ascertain as to the ultimate facts. Texas Co. v Aycock, 190 Tenn 16, 227 SW2d 41, 17 ALR2d 322. See actual knowledge.
