MAKE THE COURT PROVE ITS AUTHORITY
Courts must prove their authority to infringe fundamental rights and this insert demands in specific detail that the court do just that before infringing your rights. This insert is designed to be inserted into your original petition to demand your rights in the first and most fundamental document in your case. Pleadings can be amended. So if you have already filed your pleadings, you may be able to amend with this insert. Ask your attorney or see your rules of civil procedure.
