non est factum

[Latin, from non est factum suum, it is not his deed]
A plea that an agreement (originally a deed) mentioned in the pleading was not the act of the defendant. It can be used as a defence to actions based on *mistakes in documents when the defendant was fundamentally mistaken as to the character or effect of the transaction embodied in the document.
