French term or phrase: aucune dette n'est donnée
In court pleadings, the party argues that "Aucune dette n'est donnée antérieurement à l'application du [contrat]."

I have never come across this expression before (the document is from Luxembourg, so perhaps it is idiomatic?). I *think* the gist of the argument is that there is no binding obligation at a particular point in time, but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance for any insight.
