null and void


null and void
That which binds no one; that which is incapable of giving rise to any rights or obligations under any circumstances; that which is of no effect. But there are cases where the expression means voidable merely, that is, capable of being avoided. Ewell v Daggs, 108 US 143, 149, 27 L Ed 682, 684, 2 S Ct 408.
