VI Laica Removenda

Vi Laica Removenda (for removing laic force), in English ecclesiastical law, is a writ which lies where a clerk intrudes into an ecclesiastical benefice, and holds the same with a strong hand and by the great power of the laity. By this writ the sheriff is enjoined to remove by force, and to arrest and imprison all persons who make any resistance. The writ is returnable into the Court of the Queen's Bench, where the offenders are punished and restitution granted to the sufferer.
