Duhaime's Law Dictionary

In Toto Definition:

Latin: in total.

P. G. Osborn defines in toto as:

"Entirely; wholly."

For example, a judge may reject a statement of claim in toto or just one or more specfied parts of it. Simiularly, a contract may not be salvageable in part(s) and thus might be found to be void in toto; completley
