bill of privilege

A special form of action employed at common law when suing an attorney, clerk or other person attending a court of justice. This special form of procedure was deemed necessary because these persons were not liable to arrest by the ordinary process of the court. Greenleaf v People's Bank, 133 NC 292, 45 SE 638.
