logoSurvey Survey


a neighborhood, a neighboring place; synonym for place of trial; refers to the possible or proper place for trial of a suit, among several places where jurisdiction could be established. Venue essentially involves the right of the party sued to have the action heard in a particular judicial district, for reasons of convenience. In a criminal trial where publicity surrounding the crime would virtually preclude fair trial, the court will direct a CHANGE OF VENUE, or removal of the proceedings to a different district or county.
