Definition of "In rem jurisdiction"[edit]

Currently, this article starts with "In rem jurisdiction (Latin, "power about or against 'the thing'"[1])" where [1] cites Black's Law Dictionary.

I don't believe it. I think Black's Law Dictionary defines "in rem jurisdiction" and does not claim that "jurisdiction" is Latin for anything. The only Latin part of that is "in rem" which means, "made or availing against or affecting a thing."

Accordingly, I am adjusting the paragraph accordingly. DavidForthoffer (talk) 07:18, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
