Cautio pro expensis

CAUTIO PRO EXPENSIS. Security for costs or expenses.
     2. This term is used among the civilians, Nov. 112, c. 2, and generally on the continent of Europe. In nearly all the countries of Europe, a foreign plaintiff, whether resident there or not, is required to give caution pro expenses; that is, security for costs. In some states this requisition is modified, and, when such plaintiff has real estate, or a commercial or manufacturing establishment within the state, he is not required to give such caution. Faelix, Droit. Intern. Prive, n. 106.
