Phrase[edit]

damnum absque injuria

  1. (law) "Loss without injury." This phrase is used in tort law when one person causes damage or loss to another for which the latter has no remedy. (For example, opening a burger stand near someone else's may cause them to lose customers, but they will have no legal recourse.)
