Non-Suit Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Non-Suit.

Non-Suit (noun):

A non-suit is a judicial order or action that concludes a lawsuit in favor of the defendant because the plaintiff either did not present a valid case or failed to provide sufficient evidence. Non-suits can be voluntary, meaning that the plaintiff intentionally withdraws the case, or involuntary, often due to the plaintiff's failure to appear at trial or inability to produce requisite evidence.
