|Nolle Prosequi -- This judgment is found frequently in these files, also seen as: Nollied or Nol Pros. Lexicon gives the definition as:
An entry made on the record, by which the prosecutor or plaintiff declares that he will proceed no further.|
A nolle prosequi may be entered either in a criminal or a civil case. In civil cases, a nolle prosequi is considered, not to be of the nature of a retraxit or relaease, as was formerly supposed, but an agreement only, not to proceed either against some of the defendants or as t part of the suit. A nolle prosequi is now held to be no bar to a future action for the same cause, except to those cases where, from the nature of the action, judgment and execution against one, is a satisfaction of all the damages sustained by the paintiff.
