- Past due. Having run beyond maturity. Sometimes the term "overdue" is used in reference to a right of action against a drawer or indorser of a bill of exchange. In that connection a bill is not "overdue" until presented to the payee for payment, and payment refused. Sometimes the term is used in considering whether an indorser has been released by a failure of the holder to present the bill for payment, and to give the indorser notice of its dishonor within a reasonable time. The term is also applied to a bill which has come into the hands of an indorser, so long after its issue as to charge him with notice of its dishonor, and thus subject it in his hands to the defenses which the drawer had against it in the hands of the assignor. La Due v First Nat. Bank of Kasson, 31 Minn 33, 38. See maturity.
