Excellent, thank you, Mario; when in a court, there is 3 ways in which one grants jurisdiction: by remaining silent, pleading guilty or not guilty; the only out is to challenge the subject-matter-jurisdiction; it is a nice way of saying the court has no jurisdiction; remember, they come out like lions roaring when one says they have no jurisdiction; show the court respect, but stand firm in your conviction; keep your Bill of Rights handy and quotes such as these; in peace
#Jurisdiction The following are just a small sample of the many cases that uphold the requirement that anytime jurisdiction is challenged it must be proven:
The law provides that once State and Federal Jurisdiction has been challenged, it must be proven. Main v. Thiboutot, 100 S. Ct. 2502 (1980).
Jurisdiction can be challenged at any time and once challenged, cannot be assumed and must be decided. Basso v. Utah Power & Light Co., 495 F 2d 906, 910.
“…there is, as well, no discretion to ignore that lack of jurisdiction.” Joyce v. US, 474 F2d 215.
“A court lacking jurisdiction cannot render judgment but must dismiss the cause at any stage of the proceedings in which it becomes apparent that jurisdiction is lacking.” Bradbury v. Dennis, 310 F.2d 73 (10th Cir. 1962).
The burden shifts to the court to prove jurisdiction. Rosemond v. Lambert, 469 F2d 416.
