Et Al.

An abbreviated form of et alia, Latin for "and others." When affixed after the name of a person, et al. indicates that additional persons are acting in the same manner, such as several plaintiffs or grantors.

When et al. is used in a judgment against defendants, it means that the quoted words are applicable to all the defendants.
