remand

1. to order back 2a. to return to custody pending trial or for further detention b. to send back (a case) to another court or agency for further action


This word comes up a lot on the TV show Law & Order, but I also just saw it in an article about mental hospitals, where it is used as a noun: “He is thus kept, often for months, in the prison on remand.”
