Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  trivial adj. 1. Too simple to bother detailing. 2. Not worth the
     speaker's time. 3. Complex, but solvable by methods so well known that
     anyone not utterly cretinous would have thought of them already. 4.
     Any problem one has already solved (some claim that hackish `trivial'
     usually evaluates to `I've seen it before'). Hackers' notions of
     triviality may be quite at variance with those of non-hackers. See
     nontrivial, uninteresting.
  
     The physicist Richard Feynman, who had the hacker nature to an amazing
     degree (see his essay "Los Alamos From Below" in "Surely You're Joking,
     Mr. Feynman!"), defined `trivial theorem' as "one that has already been
     proved".
  
  

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

  lie to a bill on the ground of the triviality of the matter in dispute, as 
  being below the dignity of the court. 4 Bouv. Inst. n. 4237. See Hopk. R. 
  112; 4 John. Ch. 183; 4 Paige, 364.
