What is a rule nisi in a civil case?
Rule Nisi (pronounced "nigh-sigh") is a petition that orders an individual in a legal action to appear in court to explain why that individual has not been doing what they were ordered to do. I have only seen it in divorce cases where one ex-spouse was ordered to pay something or give something to the other ex-spouse but they failed to do so. So the nisi is issued to summon the offending spouse into court to explain him (or her) self.
