The common Law Maxim All actions in the world are limited within certain periods. (Bract. 52 page 8 Maxims of Law by Charles A. Weisman) is applicable to all courts. Usucapio constituta est ut aliquis litium finis esset  Prescription was instituted that there might be some end to litigation. (Black’s Law Dictionary 6th Edition page 1544) Praescriptio est titulus ex usu et tempore substantiam capiens ab auctoritate legis Prescription is a title by authority of law, deriving its force from use and time. (See Black’s Law Dictionary 6th Edition page 1174) The Code of Canon Law speaks of “Praescriptio” as a means of acquiring property or rights and of freeing one’s self from an obligation. (Codex Iuris Canonici Pii X Pontificis Maximi iussu digestus Benedicti Papae XV auctoritate promulgatus, Romae: Typis Polyglottis Vaticanis, 1917. Reimpressio, 1930, hereinafter cited , canon 1508)(See also Adverse Possession, Prescription and Limitations of Actions. The Canonical “Praescriptio” A Commentary On Canon 1508 by Thomas O. Martin, Ph.D., The Catholic University of America Press Washington, D.C. 1944)

The Limitation of Time to Commence an Action (Statute of Limitation) is a jurisdictional issue and is protected under the Due Process Clause in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution of the United States.
