common bench
The ancient name for the English court of common pleas. Its original title appears to have been simply "The Bench", but it was designated "Common Bench" to distinguish it from the "King's Bench", and because in it were tried and determined the causes of common persons, i.e., causes between subject and subject, in which the crown had no interest
