nunc pro tunc
nunc pro tunc
Latin for "now for then" this refers to changing back to an earlier date of an order, judgment or filing of a document. Such a retroactive re-dating requires a court order which can be obtained by a showing that the earlier date would have been legal, and there was error, accidental omission or neglect which had caused a problem or inconvenience which can be cured (Glossary of Common Bankruptcy Terms)
