: 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.
