Define That Term #264

Dictionary_2 The most recent term was per curiam, which is defined as:

adj. Latin for "by the court," defining a decision of an appeals court as a whole in which no judge is identified as the specific author.

Edward Wiest got it right!

Today's term is:

locus.

As always, no dictionaries, please.
