[Meaning] the prosecution undertaken on behalf of wrongs against individuals, the penalty in which is fixed in the laws.[1]
"Having been a litigant in an unjust lawsuit and having fled in order to avoid being ruined before them, he survived. And [they say that] the resulting lawsuit was unjust."[2]
This is the name[3] for such lawsuits whose timing is rescheduled, either because of some political reason or after the witnesses have been convicted of perjury.
