: : what is the meaning of "bite of the apple" in the court cases...?

: I suspect it means 'temptation,' referring to Eve who, in the Bible, was tempted by the Evil One/Devil/Satan to 'eat of the forbidden fruit.' The fruit that was forbidden isn't specified in the Bible but is usually depicted as an apple.

We've talked about this before. Type "bite of the apple" in the Search box.
