Consimili Casu Law and Legal Definition

Consimili casu is a writ by which a reversioner might recover land from the alienee of a life tenant or tenant by the curtesy.

The statute of Westminster the 2d authorized the clerks in chancery to frame new writs in consimili casu, with writs already known. Under this power, they constructed many writs for different injuries which were considered as in consimili casu with, that is, to bear a certain analogy to the crime. [Scott v. Peebles, 10 Miss. 546 (Miss. 1844)].
