Definition Edit

An equitable defense is usually an affirmative defense asking the court to excuse an act because the party bringing the claim has acted in an inequitable manner.

Overview Edit

Traditionally equitable defenses were only available to a court of equity and not at law. Recently, and especially in the United States, equitable defenses are available even for relief at law and where the remedy sought is one at law.
