Protem is an unincorporated community in southeastern Taney County, Missouri, United States, about ten miles north of the Arkansas state line. It is located on Route 125. A fire station, a post office, and some homes are located there. The community was founded in 1870. The name comes from pro tempore (Latin for "temporary"), because the original community could not settle on a name and a temporary one (which became permanent) was needed. The community was jokingly boycotted by the alternative rock band Inferno Armadillo in 2008 following a report that a dozen armadillos were killed in a day by a local resident. The band encouraged fans to avoid spending money at the Protem Post Office. Protem is part of the Branson, Missouri Micropolitan Statistical Area.

What is civil litigation defense?

Civil law, as opposed to criminal law, is the branch of law dealing with disputes between individuals and/or organizations, in which compensation may be awarded to the victim. For instance, if a car crash victim claims damages against the driver for loss or injury sustained in an accident, this will be a civil law case. Civil law courts provide a forum for deciding disputes involving torts (such as accidents, negligence, and libel), contract disputes, the probate of wills, trusts, property disputes, administrative law, commercial law, and any other private matters that involve private parties or organizations including government departments. The objectives of civil law are different from other types of law. In civil law there is the attempt to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or settle a dispute. If there is a victim, they get compensation, and the person who is the cause of the wrong pays, this being a civilized form of, or legal alternative to, revenge.
