Etiquette Law and Legal Definition

Etiquette means practices and forms of good manners followed by a class. Good manners are not in the eyes of the persons forming the group, but making other people feel comfortable by the way one behave. They can be prescribed by social conventions or by authority.

Etiquette means respect for the dignity and worth of a fellow human being. [State v. Smith, 1999 SD 83, P63 (S.D. 1999)]
