False Demonstration

gift partly item true

An inaccurate or erroneous description of an individual or item in a written instrument.

With respect to testamentary gifts, where the description of an individual or item in a will is partly true and partly false, in the event that the true portion describes the subject or object of the gift with adequate certainty, the untrue part may be rejected under the doctrine of false demonstration, and the gift upheld and enforced.
