no-claim,n. The lack of a claim. • Legal philosophers devised this term to denote the opposite of a claim. As one jurisprudent has said apologetically, “there is no word in English which expresses the lack of a claim and therefore the rather barbarous ‘no-claim’ has been suggested.” George Whitecross Paton, A Textbook of Jurisprudence 291 (G.W. Paton & David P. Derham eds., 4th ed. 1972).
