  1. Chose

    Chose, is a term used in common law tradition in different senses. Chose local is a thing annexed to a place, such as a mill.

Before the Judicature Acts, a legal chose in action was not assignable, i.e., the assignee could not sue at law in his own name. To this rule there were two exceptions:
