De novi operis nunciatione

DE NOVI OPERIS NUNCIATIONE, Civil law. Where a thing is intended to be done against another man's right, the party aggrieved may have in many cases, according to the civilians, an interdict or injunction, to hinder that which is intended to his prejudice: as where one buildeth an house contrary to the usual and received form of building to the injury of his neighbor, there lieth an injunction de novi operis nunciatione, which being served, the offender is either to desist from his work or to put in sureties that he shall pull it down, if he do not in a short time avow, i. e. show, the lawfulness thereof. Ridley's Civ. and Eccl. Law, part 1, chap 1, sect. 8.
