Feigned Action Law and Legal Definition
Feigned action is a fictitious suit; a suit instituted to obtain a judicial opinion, without an actual or existing controversy between the parties. A feigned action is brought on a pretended right when the plaintiff has no true cause of action. A feigned action differs from a false action. In a feigned action, the words of the writ are true whereas in a false action, the words of the writ are false.
