in pari delicto potior est condition defendentis

Latin maxim.

• “The law will not aid either party to an illegal agreement; it leaves the parties where it finds them.” (Bough v. Cantiveros, En Banc, G.R. No. 13300, September 29, 1919) • “the parties to a controversy are equally culpable or guilty, they shall have no action against each other, and it shall leave the parties where it finds them.” (Constantino v.
