Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  MITIGATION. To make less rigorous or penal. 
       2. Crimes are frequently committed under circumstances which are not 
  justifiable nor excusable, yet they show that the offender has been greatly 
  tempted; as, for example, when a starving man steals bread to satisfy his 
  hunger, this circumstance is taken into consideration in mitigation of his 
  sentence. 
       3. In actions for damages, or for torts, matters are frequently proved 
  in mitigation of damages. In an action for criminal conversation with the 
  plaintiff's wife, for example, evidence may be given of the wife's general 
  bad character for want of chastity; or of particular acts of adultery 
  committed by her, before she became acquainted with the defendant; 12 Mod. 
  R. 232; Bull. N. P. 27, 296; Selw. N. P. 25; 1 Johns. Cas, 16: or that the 
  plaintiff has carried on a criminal conversation with other women; Bull. N. 
  P. 27; or that the plaintiff's wife has made the first advances to the 
  defendant, 2 Esp. N. P. C. 562; Selw. N. P. 25. See 3 Am. Jur. 287, 313; 
  Bouv. Inst. Index, h.t.  
       4. In actions for libel, although the defendant cannot under the 
  general issue prove the crime, which is imputed to the plaintiff, yet he is 
  in many cases allowed to give evidence of the plaintiff's general character 
  in mitigation of damages. 2 Campb. R. 251; 1 M. & S. 284.
