Objections Legal Definition

Objections legal definition: In a legal context, objections are statements opposing an aspect of a legal proceeding (i.e. an attorney may raise an objection to a question opposing counsel posed to a witness). Objections must have a proper basis. 

Objections are made when:

  • A question posed to a witness is irrelevant, is leading, or calls for a conclusion
  • The witness is incompetent to testify
  • A statement made under oath is hearsay

A judge can rule one of two ways on an objection. Judges can:

  • Overturn the objection, which means the question is permitted
  • Sustain the objection, which means the question may not be asked
