When the Courts Reopen in 2017

Dies Non

This is a Latin expression that has to do with the Courts. The full saying is actually Dies Non Juridicum and means: Day Without Judiciary (the courts). This means the days when the courts are closed and these days don’t “count”.  Some older English documents don’t use Latin but rather write it in English and use the expression  ‘Days of Grace’ to mean the same thing.
