Coram non judice
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
Coram non judice, Latin for "before one who is not a judge," is a legal term typically used to indicate a legal proceeding without a judge, with improper venue, or without jurisdiction. Any indictment or sentence passed by a court which has no authority to try an accused of that offence, is clearly in violation of the law and would be coram non judice and a nullity. The exception 'iudicis non sui', 'not his judge', is available at any time, including after judgment (Bracton).
