Legal Definition and Related Resources of Visne

Meaning of Visne

The neighborhood; a neighboring place; a place near at hand; the venue. Formerly the visne was confined to the immediate neghborhood where the cause of action arose, and many verdicts were disturbed because the visne was too large, which becoming a great grievance, several statutes were passed to remedy the evil. 21 Jac. I. 0. 13, gives aid after verdict, where the visne is partly wrong, that is, where It is warded out of too many or too few places in the county named. 16 & 17 Car. II. c. 8, goes further, and cures defects of the visne wholly, so that the cause is tried by a jury of the proper county. See “Venue.”
