In Common-Law Pleading , the response made by a defendant to a plaintiff's surrejoinder, which rebuts earlier denials made by the defendant.

The making of a rebutter occurs in the third round of the series of pleadings made by the parties. First, there is the plaintiff's declaration which is countered by the defendant's plea. Next, the plaintiff makes a replication which is answered by the defendant in his or her rejoinder. In the third stage of Pleading, the plaintiff makes a surrejoinder to which the defendant responds by use of the rebutter.

Shakespeare was against it ("But me no buts..") but (sorry!) I often have to resort to it when my freshly buttered toast slips from my hands.

I must be naive. I first thought the word referred to re-buttering something, not about debating.
