Et ux.

I just learned something new. I clicked on a link to read a decision handed down by the Supreme Court today -- AT&T v. Conception -- and noted that the official caption was: "AT&T Mobility LLC v. Conception et ux."

I'd never noticed that "et ux." Latinism before. Apparently, it is short for "et uxor" and means "and wife."
