NP (nolle pros­e­qui): A for­mal en­try upon the record by the pros­e­cut­ing of­fi­cer in a crim­i­nal case by which he de­clares that he “will no fur­ther pros­e­cute” the case.

Stet: Stay of a de­ci­sion that may not be en­tered over the de­fen­dant’s ob­jec­tion and may be re­in­stated within the year for trial at the re­quest of ei­ther party. After one year’s time, it may be resched­uled only upon good cause shown.
