v line


A person, appointed in the place of another, to represent him.

In the ecclesiastical law, a judicial proctor, or one who is appointed to manage another man's law concerns, is called a proxy.The instrument by which a person is appointed so to act, is likewise called a proxy.Proxies are also annual payments made by the parochial clergy to the bishop, etc., on visitations.The right of voting at an election of an incorporated company by proxy is not a general right, and the party claiming it must show a special authority for that purpose.
