    Default merit and demerit

    Please help me the meaning of the phrase "merit and demerit".

    I've got a sentence from my client: "I will talk with him and merit and demerit, he accept your case".

    I don't really understand the above phrase.

    Thanks.

    Good morning, Vietnam!

    The sentence itself is not correctly formed, but I suppose the client means that he will 'consider the merits and demerits' of the case: this means that he will consider 'the promising points and unpromising points', or 'the good qualities and bad qualities' of the potential lawsuit.
