Definition of EXECUTIO NON


EXECUTIO NON

These words occur in the stat. 13 Ed. I. cap. 45, in the
following connexion: Et...precipiatur vice comiti quod scire faciat
parti... quod sit ad certum diem ostensura si quid sciat dicere quare
hujustnodi irrotulata vel in fine contenta executionem habere non debeant.
This statute is the origin of the scire facias post annum et diem quare
executionem non, etc. To a plea in bar to such a writ, the defendant should
conclude that the plaintiff ought not to have or maintain his aforesaid
execution thereof against him, which is called the executio non, as in
other cases by actio non. (q. v.) 10 Mod. 112, Yelv. 218.
