damn-, demn-

(Latin: to harm, damage, loss; sentence to punishment, doom; worthy of condemnation)

ad quod damnum (Latin)
To what damage.

A legal phrase used for assessing damages relating to privately owned land that is taken for public use. The name of a writ, formerly issued from the English chancery, commanded the sheriff to make an inquiry "to what damage" a specified act, if done, would tend.

This writ is of ancient origin and could be issued as a writ of right when a landowner is dissatisfied with the assessment of damages as a result of a condemnation commission.
