causa proxima

causa proxima
/koza proksama/ The immediate, nearest, or latest cause. The efficient cause; the one that necessarily sets the other causes in operation. Insurance Co. v. Boon, 95 U.S. 117, 130, 24 L.Ed. 395.
causa proxima non remota spectatur
/koza proksama non ramowta spekteytar/ An efficient adequate cause being found, it must be considered the true cause unless some other independent cause is shown to have intervened between it and the result. The immediate (or direct), not the remote, cause, is looked at, or considered.
For a distinction, however, between immediate and proximate cause, see cause
