First Impression

From lawbrain.com

The initial presentation to, or examination by, a court of a particular question of law.

A case is labeled of the first impression when it sets forth a completely original issue of law for decision by the court. Such a case cannot be decided by reliance on any existing precedent, law formulated in a prior case decided on a comparable question of law, or similar facts.
