Pro Possessore Legal Definition: Latin: a person who holds something only as possessor, not necessarily as owner. Related Terms: Pro Possessore Habetur Qui Dolo Injuriave As a possessor, and not as an owner. For example, a person may exercise certain rights over a thing not as owner but pro possessore: as a person who possesses, but does not own, the thing. G. W. Bush wrote: "The possessor possessore (is) the person who could produce no other argument to prove his title to possession other than the fact of the possession itself."
