In response to: “Time out of mind” written by Beth on May 27, 2003 For a longer period of time; many times. The term “temporal immorality” is sometimes used to describe the priority date of water rights holders.  In the western United States, water rights are administered under the doctrine of prior appropriation.  With prior appropriation, water rights are acquired through beneficial water use.  Previously acquired water rights take precedence and take precedence over subsequent subordinate water rights in the event of water scarcity due to drought or overappropriation.  In general, the priority date for Indian tribal water rights, also known as Winters rights, is the date on which the tribe`s reservation was established.  However, courts sometimes find that tribal water rights have an “immemorial” priority date, the earliest conceivable date for Indigenous water use on reserved lands that overlap with Indigenous lands.  For example, in U.S. v.
Adair, the court held that the Klamath tribe necessarily had water rights with a priority date of “time immemorial” because it had lived and used the waters of central Oregon and northern California for over a thousand uninterrupted years before entering into a treaty with the United States in 1864.  In law, time immemorial means “a period of time beyond which legal memory cannot extend” and “time out of the heart.”  The term “time immemorial” appears most often as a legal term of art in legal discussions on the development of common law and in the United States on the property rights of Native Americans.    A long period of time, longer than you can easily remember. Long ago, beyond memory or memory, as in These ruins have stood here since time immemorial, or His office was out of mind on Madison Avenue for the time. The first term comes from English law, where it means “beyond legal memory”, especially before the reign of Richard I (1189-1199), which was established as the legal limit for certain types of trials. Around 1600, it was extended to its current feeling of “a very long time ago”. The variant, first recorded in 1432, uses the mind in the sense of “memory” or “recall”. Time immemorial (Latin: Ab immemorabili) is an expression that means time that extends beyond the reach of memory, archives or tradition, indefinitely old, “old beyond memory or records”.  The term is used both in legally significant contexts and in common usage.
“Aboriginal title” describes the land rights that Native Americans have over the lands they occupied continuously and exclusively for a long time before the invasion of other inhabitants.  When claiming or establishing Aboriginal title, claimant tribes and courts sometimes describe their settlement as a “period of time immemorial.”  You see, Crown lands are lands stolen from Indigenous peoples who have been here since time immemorial and will continue to be here as custodians of the land. Indigenous peoples were rarely consulted on how conservation measures would affect their well-being or the places they had managed since time immemorial, and Indigenous knowledge and practices were rarely integrated into park management. “Time out of the heart.” Merriam-Webster.com Dictionary, Merriam-Webster, www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/time%20out%20of%20mind. Retrieved 3 December 2022. Period far back in time when there is no memory or record to prove a custom, right or claim. In Britain, a law of 1275 stating that the period prior to the reign of King Richard I or 1189 was declared immemorial. Also known as Time out of mind. TIME IMMEMORIAL, TIME OUT OF MIND: Strictly speaking, “immemorial” is any time before 1199, which is the date set in 1275 as the time that no one could remember, and therefore no legal matter could deal with events prior to that date. “Time out of mind”, recorded from the fifteenth century, is only the simple English version of the same thing. At least since the eighteenth century, “time immemorial” has been used in a manner similar to “dawn of time,” and both expressions are often used vaguely today to mean little more than “in the past.” Julia Cresswell, Penguin Dictionary of Clichés, 2000.
American law inherited the English common law tradition.  Unlike English law, U.S. law does not establish “time immemorial,” and U.S. courts differ in their claims to establish “imdenklichkeit” for common law purposes.  In Knowles v. Dow, a New Hampshire court, ruled that 20 years was enough to prove a legal custom dating back to “time immemorial.”  In most cases, however, U.S. courts identify the common law without reference to the term “immemorial time.”  The term “time immemorial” is often used to describe the time it takes for a custom to mature at common law.  The common law is a set of laws established by judges in judicial proceedings and not created by legislators.
 Judges determine the common law by establishing principles of law that have been consistently repeated over a long period of time in previous cases.  : Can someone help me understand and/or understand the origin of this sentence?: Thank you.
