the plea of prohibition is concerned, withdraw against him sine die and he be in mercy  against them for his false claim.
We have spoken of a case where there was consent; now where it is against his will.
 We have explained how one is made subject to another jurisdiction by consent. Now  we must explain what happens if, against his will, he is drawn into plea before an  ecclesiastical judge in matters which belong to the crown and dignity of the king.  When one is drawn in this way before an ecclesiastical judge, who is unwilling to consider  whether the jurisdiction is his but usurps the king's jurisdiction to himself, both  offend, the judges who hold the plea and he who sues, [and thus], on the complaint of  him who is thus drawn before one not his proper judge, let a writ of the lord king issue  to the judges, forbidding them to proceed, and to him who sues, forbidding him to  sue, in this form. [Had they given judgment, they could not execute it, because the  sheriff would do nothing on their order.]
Writ of prohibition (if it is against the crown and dignity of the lord king) to judges forbidding them to hold a plea touching chattels unconnected with a testament or marriage.
 1The king to such judges, greeting. We forbid you to hold the plea in court christian  between A. the demandant and B. the tenant concerning so much land with the appurtenances  (or touching the lay fee of the said B.) in such a vill (or concerning  debts and chattels unconnected with a testament or marriage) as to which the aforesaid  B. complains that the aforesaid A. wrongfully draws him into plea before you,  because pleas touching lay fee (or touching debts and chattels unconnected with a  testament or marriage) belong to our crown and dignity. This form of prohibition is  applicable when it is addressed to judges who have ordinary jurisdiction. If it is  delegated jurisdiction, as where they have been delegated by the lord pope or other  ordinary, then thus:
To judges, forbidding them to hold
[a plea] touching lay fee.  The king to such judges, greeting. We forbid you to hold the plea in court christian  concerning the lay fee of A. in such a vill (or concerning debts and chattels etc.) as  to which the same A. complains that B. of N. draws him into plea before you in court  christian by authority of letters of the lord pope, [because pleas touching lay fee] etc.  (as above). The same form may be used with respect to the advowsons of churches  and other pleas which belong to the crown and dignity of the lord king. Then thus:  [We forbid you] to hold the plea in court christian touching the advowson of the  church of such a place, as to which such a one complains etc. (as above)
