Money Counts Law and Legal Definition

A note given in payment for goods purchased may be introduced in evidence under the money counts. It was formerly, the common counts in an action of assumpsit.

When a writ contains the money counts, there may be some difficulty in determining what demands were put in suit. But in the absence of all contradictory proof, those will be considered as in suit, which the plaintiff then owned, and which were due and payable and liable to be introduced, without amendment, and which were in fact so introduced, and judgment rendered thereon. [Fairbanks v. Stanley, 18 Me. 296 (Me. 1841)].
