Ignoramus (n.) We are ignorant; we ignore; -- being the word formerly written on a bill of indictment by a grand jury when there was not sufficient evidence to warrant them in finding it a true bill. The phrase now used is, ''No bill,'' ''No true bill,'' or ''Not found,'' though in some jurisdictions ''Ignored'' is still used.
