ALL cash should be accepted in a court. What is the reason not to?Because if somebody gets sued in court for non-payment of a debt,
there needs to be a clearly defined method by which settlement of that
debt must be accepted. If not, the creditor could come up with various
bizarre means of payments which the debtor was unable to comply with.
That legally defined method of settlement of a debt in a court is what
is known as Legal Tender.
That is all the term means. Nothing else. It has nothing to do with
what a store might accept as payment when you go shopping. It would
help if you tried to understand the difference.
