Warning Law and Legal Definition
A warning is an alert, typically in response to an impending threat or danger. A warning on a product may be regulated by a governmental agency, so cautionary statements required will vary by product. In court, a warning from a judge is a verbal reprimand advising a party of future consequences which will occur if the court's admonishment isn't followed. Such a warning is not a matter of public record, such as a conviction or acquittal.
