in rem
Explanation:
Defendant in rem

In Rem
Latin: "against the thing." A proceeding against the property directly, as distinguished from a proceeding against a person (used in taking land for nonpayment of taxes, etc.)
Example: Baker cannot collect on his past due loan from Abel. Baker, through court action, secures a Judgment in rem against a building lot owned by Abel, which causes a lien against the lot.
