Without Day Law and Legal Definition
Without day is a term used when a date has not been set for resuming a hearing or calling another meeting, and it can mean either an indefinite postponement or a permanent abandonment of proceedings. If a meeting is adjourned sine die or without day it can mean either that it will be rescheduled or may never occur again.
When a legislative session comes to an end, it adjourns without day, meaning that there is nothing further. However, if an emergency arises, the legislators might be called back into special session. When a case is dismissed and the defendant is told that he may go hence without day, it means that the defendant is permanently released, unless an appeal is brought that reverses the decision.
