Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus is a Latin phrase meaning “false in one thing, false in everything.”[2] At common law, it is the legal principle that a witness who testifies falsely about one matter is not credible to testify about any matter.[3]Although many common law jurisdictions have rejected a categorical application of the rule, the doctrine has survived in some American courts.[4]
