What Is a Leave of Court?
7/12/17 What Is a Leave of Court?
Leave of Court is a request made by a party to the court to obtain permission to do something, which would have been unlawful without such permission. A request for leave of court is considered as an implied admission of jurisdiction of the court. In certain cases where the objection to the jurisdiction must be taken exclusively by plea to the jurisdiction, a request for leave of court will in effect vest the jurisdiction in such court.
