Nullum Tempus Act (n<<schwa>>l-<<schwa>>m tem-p<<schwa>>s akt), n.[Latin] Hist. English law. The Crown Suits Act of 1769 (amended in 1862) that limited the Crown’s time to sue, in land and other specified matters, to 60 years. • The statute altered the common-law rule of nullum tempus aut locus occurrit regi (“no time or place affects the Crown”), which was based on the idea that the Crown was too busy with governmental affairs to timely attend to its legal affairs.
