adv. Law Latin
Without such cause. *In common-law pleading, this was part of the larger phrase de injuria sua propria, absque tali cause ("on his own wrong, without such cause") appearing in a reply a trespass plaintiff made to counter a defendant's claim of excuse. In an assault case for example, if a defendant pleaded that he had struck the plaintiff in self-defense, the plaintiff could reply that the defendant was guilty of his own wrong committed without such cause as alleged. Cf. DE INJURIA.
