Dispute Law and Legal Definition

Dispute means a controversy. It refers to an allegation of fact by one person denied by another person, both acting with some show of reason.

The following is an example of a case law referring to dispute:

A mere naked allegation, without evidence, or against the evidence, cannot create a dispute within the meaning of the law. [Knight's Appeal, 19 Pa. 493, 494 (Pa. 1852)].
