See also:maintenance is an officious intermeddling in an action that in no way belongs to one by maintaining or assisting either party, with
See also:money or otherwise, to prosecute or defend it . It is an indictable offence, both at

See also:matter at variance can maintain another in an action concerning the matter; or several parties who have a common interest in the same thing may maintain one another in a suit concerning the same . Neither is it reckoned maintenance to assist another in his suit on charitable grounds, or for a
See also:master to assist his servant, or a
