Sub judice

Today’s word of the day (expression of the day?) is sub judice, an adverb indicating something is under judicial deliberation or before a judge or court of law. One might write, “When a case is pending or is ongoing, those connected with the case must refrain from talking about it to anyone because it is sub judice.”

A similar term is coram judice, before a judge having legal jurisdiction of the matter.

And there’s me judice, which means, “I being the judge” or “in my opinion.” An example use: “You have a fine chance (me judice) at this moment to put the popular feeling toward England into verse which shall ring from one end of the country to the other.”
