A well-founded claim. The ideas of claim and that the claim must be well-founded always constitute the idea of right. If these claims inhere in the very nature of man himself, they are called inherent, inalienable rights. Right and obligation are correlative ideas. The idea of a well-founded claim becomes in law a claim founded in or established by the law; so that it is said that a right in law is an acknowledged claim. Thus, at law, no right is brought into existence until a well-founded claim is made in a proper and timely manner.
