Jurisdiction: Dismissal

Wommack v. National Farmers Union Property & Casualty Co., et al. [12/26/14] 2014 MTWCC 22 Despite there being pending motions, once the Court determines that it lacks jurisdiction, it can take no further action in a case other than to dismiss it.

Kutzler v. Montana State Fund [01/26/05] 2005 MTWCC 5 Where a court lacks jurisdiction over a petition, it must dismiss the petition on that basis and cannot consider other possible defenses raised by the respondent.
