Random information on the term “Pretense”:

In US law, a pretext usually describes false reasons that hide the true intentions or motivations for a legal action. If a party can establish a prima facie case for the proffered evidence, the opposing party must prove that these reasons were “pretextual” or false. This can be accomplished by directly demonstrating that the motivations behind the presentation of evidence is false, or indirectly by evidence that the motivations are not “credible”. In Griffith v. Schnitzer, an employment discrimination case, a jury award was reversed by a Court of Appeals because the evidence was not sufficient that the defendant’s reasons were “pretextual”. That is, the defendant’s evidence was either undisputed, or the plaintiff’s was “irrelevant subjective assessments and opinions”.
