Sub judice

“Sub judice” is a legal term derived from Latin, which means “under judgment.” It is used to describe a legal matter that is currently under judicial consideration or awaiting resolution by a court. When a case is sub judice, it implies that it is being heard or is pending before a court of law. In general, it is considered inappropriate to discuss the details of such cases in public or in the media until a judgment has been reached. This principle is crucial in maintaining the integrity of legal proceedings and ensuring that parties receive a fair trial without any undue influence from external sources.
