    What is a bill of collection? and whats does trial-minded mean?

    Hello,

    I've read these terms in two different articles, but I find it easier to post both questions together. In an article in Time Magazine about the recreational use of Brinkerhoff log cabin by government officials I read about a "bill of collection" but couldn't find any exact definition that applied to that context, I assumed it had something to do with maybe an invoice, but not sure.

    About the term "trial-minded" I'mm sorry but I cant remember where I saw it. And have not found anything that tells me, and the term itself does not do so either.

    Thanks in advance

    You are correct in your interpretation of "bill of collection" in this case - it is a type of invoice. There is a lot of technical legal language involved in explaining the difference between a bill of collection and an invoice, but in simple terms a bill of collection is sent directly to the bank where the person/entity has his/its account, and not directly to the person who accrued the charges. Some businesses use this manner of debt collection because it has a separate set of rules under the Uniform Rules for Collection.


    "Trial-minded" refers to a thought process that anticipates all the legal aspects of a situation. It is presumed that the situation/case will eventually go to trial in court before a judge and jury, so care will be taken to collect evidence and present the facts with that in mind.
