Action de die in diem is a Latin term. It means ‘from day to day.’ In early days, the term was used to refer to an action occurring from day to day. It referred to a continuing right of action. For example, if a person wrongfully places something on another person’s land and leave it there, that act is not a single act of trespass. Instead, is a continuing action giving rise to fresh cause of action de die in diem.
