What is the legal term used when a law is made for one person/group?

On edit: It was said that this is what the bill that they introduced for Terri Schiavo was.
I cannot remember the legal term.

6. Yep, back in the Early Republic, it was the only mechanism for a divorce in many states.
Needless to say, it limited the number of divorces to those with means/connections. Also, in the mid-18th Century Parliament, the majority of acts were private bills, often for the aid and succor of one large land owner as enclosure came to an end.
