Ignorance of the Law is NO EXCUSE!

Do you know how to find the official law that will decides who wins your case?

Do you know how to find and read appellate case reports?

Do you know how to find and read statutes, code, and ordinances?

It’s easier than you might imagine!

If you went to court before personal computers and the internet, you’d be digging through dismally dry and boring stacks of look-alike books in a law library (if you could find one nearby).

Back then, winning required hundreds of hours turning dusty pages, pulling piles of books from the stacks, spreading them on a library table, and taking notes on a yellow pad in search of support.

All that has changed.

Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-stepThanks to the internet and price competition, online legal research is now within the reach of most pocketbooks.

The judge is not “legal authority”.

Judges are required to obey “legal authority”.

How to Argue with Judges!

Baseball player arguing with Umpire

How to Win in Court

Arguing with judges is like arguing with baseball umpires.

You better know the rules AND HOW TO USE THEM!

Here are a

few rules from the Official Major League Baseball Rulebook:

  • A player is not permitted to step or go into a dugout to make a catch.
  • A player is permitted to reach into a dugout to make a catch.
  • If a player makes a catch outside the dugout and his momentum carries him into the dugout, the catch is allowed as long as the player does not fall in the dugout.

Simple enough?


What if one team’s players and coaches don’t know the rules?

Will it do any good to argue with the umpire?

Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-stepProbably not!

And %#$@&$#*% will only get you thrown out of the park!

To arguey with a baseball umpire or judge in a courtroom, you must know the Rules of Court … and how how to use them.

It’s the bottom of the ninth. Two down. Batter at the plate.

The count is three and two. The batter pops a high foul. You push back your catcher’s mask and dash toward the dugout to make the catch. The ball hits your glove and you trip on the rim of the dugout and fall in. Scrambling to your feet, you climb back out of the dugout, ball in your upraised hand, triumphant grin on your face.

Teammates cheer.

Fans roar fanatic approval from the stands.

But, the scornful look on the umpire’s f

ace and his raspy voice erase your victorious joy.

“Foul Ball!”

“But, I caught the ball, ump!”

The player strides purposely toward the umpire, waving a fist, yelling obscenities, and spitting (of course).

Fast behind is the coach, marching menacingly toward the umpire, cap shoved back, fists in the air, also shouting nasties a

nd accusing the umpire of needing a new pair of glasses.

The umpire stands firmly behind the plate, hands planted on his hips, and waits for the verbal onslaught.

“I caught the foul ball. It’s an out!”

“It’s a foul ball. Period!” the umpire insists.

“You must be blind, Ump! It’s an out! Game’s over. We win! You saw me catch

“Maybe not,” the umpire insists, “but Jeeter knows the ground rules! You fell in the dugout. Catch doesn’t count. Get back behind the plate where you belong!”the ball? Jeeter couldn’t do any better!”

“But. But. But.”

How to Read the Law …

Know What the Law Actually Says and Means!

One of the biggest case-losing mistakes is mis-reading the law.

  • Constitutions
  • Rules
  • Statutes
  • Codes
  • Court Rulings
  • Other Legal Documents

If you don’t know what a law actually says, you’ll have a devilishly hard time getting a judge to agree with you!

Understanding the “rules of language interpretation” is essential … not only to winning lawsuits but to obtain success in other pursuits of life as well.

Legal language must be interpreted according to the “rules of language interpretation”.

Understanding the rules of language interpretation are vital to winning your case. You DO want to win, don’t you?

Too many otherwise clever people “assume” they know what a law says, when the only opinion that counts in court is what appellate justices say the law says.

Appellate justices apply the rules of language interpretation. You must also!

Learn the rules … if you want to win!

For example, one of the principles rules is the “Plain Meaning Rule”. This rule requires judges to give words their “plain meaning”, i.e., what an ordinary reasonable person would believe a word means in the context where it’s found.

You must never let a judge or opposing party or his lawyer to play games with words. Knowing these rules (more completely explained in my course) gives you the knowledge-power you need to put a stop to the word games!

If a reasonable person would read “bicycle” to mean a two-wheeled vehicle powered only by legs and feet, no judge or lawyer should be allowed to stretch the meaning to include mopeds or motorcycles. Judges and lawyers should be compelled to agree that a law says “plainly” what it says and that it means it.

Sometimes judges and lawyers twist words to reach an outcome theydesire. YOU must know these rules so you can put a stop to it before it causes you to lose your case!Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step

So? What if the meaning is plain but the context is confusing?

Other rules (explained in my course) give clear direction.

For example, according to the rule of “ejusdem generis” (simply Latin for “of the same type”), general terms at the end of specific lists include only things of the same type as those specifically mentioned in the list. If a provision lists “oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and other fruit“, the doctrine of ejusdem generis limits the phrase “other fruit” to mean other citrus fruit. Apples and pears are not included. One may assume the provision includes other citrus, e.g., kumquats, limes, tangelos, etc. However, strawberries and grapes are not included. The term ejusdem generis means, in essence, of the same type.

Beware of Legal Mythology!

How to Win in Court

Many today are angry at our justice system.

Many have good cause to be angry!

Some, however, are too angry!

Their anger will hurt you!

They are blinded by their anger!

You’ll recognize them by the anger. They are not your friend! Their “legal theories” fail. They are blinded by rage. Believe them at your peril.

#1 An angry person called insisting she had “copyrighted” her name so the courts couldn’t use her name on official papers. To think one can prevent others from using one’s name by “copyrighting” it is utter nonsense. Anger twists the mind in strange ways!

#2 Some are convinced our courts are “admiralty courts” and cannot rule in common law or statute, all because there is a yellow fringe on the courtroom flag. This lie has been promoted for years by angry people that don’t know (or don’t want to make any effort to know) the truth.

#3 Some claim to be “patriots”, yet do all they can to evade the Rule of Law and refuse to do anything toward learning the principles of due process so many gave their lives to protect in past and present wars!

#4 Thousands hover around the radio to hear commentators tell them how horrible things are, yet only a handful of talk show hosts encourage us to make things better by exercising our God-given “law power” in court!

Finding Evidence – Part 4

Depositions are simply a chance to show people things and ask them questions while they are under oath … and with an official court reporter making a written record.

The deponent (person being deposed) is exposed to criminal penalties for perjury.

Depositions are your opportunity to put your opponent and every necessary witness under oath before trial and get answers to questions that go beyond the tight restrictions of the rules of evidence that control at trial!

Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-stepThe facts you seek at a deposition need not be admissible at trial so long as they are “reasonably calculated to lead to discovery of admissible evidence”.

However it’s done, taking depositions is simply one of putting a witness under oath in the presence of a court reporter (who administers the oath and records all that’s asked and answered) and in the presence of your opponent (and his counsel, if he has a lawyer) who may also ask questions of the witness.

Knowing how and when to take depositions gives you a major advantage over your opponent.

Finding Evidence – Part Three …

The discovery tool is called a Request for Production.

You can use it to get documents or things … of all descriptions.

Requests for Production are simply papers requiring your opponent to produce documents and tangible things you list in your request … so you can inspect them and copy them for your own use.

Even though they’re called “requests”, they forceyour opponent to produce … or go to jail.
