Bonjour - i'm confused as to why this is tierce instead of troisième. The lesson stated that tierce is used for fractions or portions and troisième is used for rank or order. A third party witness sounds like a ranking/ordering to me, and not a fraction or portion.
Would appreciate clarification.
If you look at my answer to Robin, it might clarify things for you....
