Aider by Verdict / Cure by Verdict Law and Legal Definition

Cure by verdict refers to cure of a pleading defect by a trial verdict. This is based on the presumption that the record contains adequate proof of the necessary facts even if those facts were not specifically alleged. For example, a cause is sent for trial and the verdict is given. Here the courts will overlook the defects in the statement of a title which will be available on a demurrer or if taken at an earlier period.
