A Fortiori
(ah-for-shee-oh-ree) Latin for "with even stronger reason," which applies to a situation in which if one thing is true then it can be inferred that a second thing is even more certainly true. Thus, if one party is too young to serve as administrator, then his younger brother certainly is too young.
