Difference Between Jurisdiction and Exercise of Jurisdiction
« on: November 15, 2016, 12:40:55 PM »
How is jurisdiction distinguished from exercise of jurisdiction?

ANSwer: Jurisdiction is the authority to hear and decide a case. It does not depend upon the regularity of the exercise of that power or upon the rightfulness of the decision made. (Lim , et al. v. Hon. Felipe Pacquing, et al., 55 SCAD 112, G.R. No. 115044, September 1, 1994, citing Century Ins. Co. v. Fuentes, 2 SCRA 1160 [1961]).

If there is jurisdiction over the person and the subject matter, the resolution of all other questions arising in the case is but an exercise of jurisdiction. (Herrera v. Baretto, 25 Phil. 245; Palma v. Q & S, Inc., L-20366, May 16, 1966; Heirs of So, et al. v. Obliosa, et al, G.R. No. 147082 can now be accessed on mobile phones via Tapatalk App both in Android and Apple OS.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
