Definition - What does Interlocutory mean?
An interlocutory is a proceeding that is taken within a case and after a case. It is sometimes referred to as housekeeping and is related to the proceedings as opposed to relating to the trial. A decree which is given provisionally within a trial is commonly referred to as an interlocutory decree. Breaking the word down in Latin, it literally means the words that come in law.
