Pecuniary Interest in Action Law and Legal Definition

The term pecuniary interest in action means a direct pecuniary interest in the result of a particular case. [Robinson v. State, 86 Ga. App. 375, 378 (Ga. Ct. App. 1952)].

Pecuniary interest is necessary to sustain a right to appeal, substantial and immediate interest, a future, contingent, or merely speculative interest ordinarily being insufficient.
