Pro hac vice
From Legal Wiki
The phrase literally means "for this one particular occasion" and is not considered a precedent for other cases. Jurisprudence forms part of the law of the land, for which reason they could be relied upon in subsequent cases with the same or similar facts. For instance, in the case of Aboitiz Shipping Corporation vs. Insurance Company of North America,, the Supreme Court noted that there are particular circumstances that warrants a deviation from a previous ruling, "albeit this ruling is being made pro hac vice, not to be made a precedent for other cases."
