Remand

To send back.

A higher court may remand a case to a lower court so that the lower court will take a certain action ordered by the higher court. A prisoner who is remanded into custody is sent back to prison subsequent to a PRELIMINARY HEARING before a tribunal or magistrate until the hearing is resumed, or the trial is commenced.
