The article deals with one basis of the renewal of the proceedings in the civil case– the essence of newly disclosed circumstances, their conception, attributes that are established in the legal doctrine of Lithuania, legal regulation and case law. The author expresses his attitude towards the identifying attributes of newly disclosed circumstances while generalizing these attributes as conditions and analyzing each of them at length.
