Per incuriam

“Per incuriam” is a Latin term used in the legal system which means “through lack of care” or “by inadvertence.” This refers to a judgment or decision that has been made without giving full consideration to all the relevant facts or law. When a decision is made per incuriam, it may not be considered as a binding precedent and can be ignored in subsequent legal proceedings. This term is often used in legal appeals or challenges to decisions that are believed to have been made in error or without proper consideration.
