Icon-UpArrow "Sua Sponte"


Lat.: of itself or of one's self. Without being prompted; refers especially to a court's acting of its own volition (on its own motion), without a motion being made by either of the adverse parties. EXAMPLE: A party files a lawsuit and the opponent replies, so that both parties are prepared to litigate the issue. If the judge realizes for some reason that he has no jurisdiction over the case, he will on his own initiative dismiss the case. His action is taken sua sponte.
