Due Notice

Due Notice

Information that must be given or made available to a particular person or to the public within a legally mandated period of time so that its recipient will have the opportunity to respond to a situation or to allegations that affect the individual's or public's legal rights or duties.

Due notice is not a fixed period of time in every instance but varies from case to case, depending upon the facts and the applicable statutory requirements. In some situations, it might be a specified time; in others, it might be considered a reasonable time, thereby presenting a Question of Fact in a lawsuit to determine if timely notice has been given.
