But to  the contrary [the roll] of Michaelmas term in the second and the beginning of the  third years of king Henry son of king John, in the county of Kent, [the case] of  Matilda daughter of Simon, who was attached because she sued a plea, as were the  abbot of St. Augustine, the prior of Holy Trinity, Canterbury and the prior of St.  Gregory, the judges, because they held the plea, touching a certain house which  Matilda claimed by virtue of a testamentary causa in London,1 as to which Simon  the son of Simon complained that [she wrongfully sued him in court christian with  respect to] his lay fee. There all defended [themselves] and [damages] were adjudged  but remitted with the amercements at the petition of the legatee,2 and the judges  gave security that they would proceed no further. But what remedy will the legatee  have in the lay forum?>3 <It is clear that the prohibition will always lie until it has  been decided in the king's court whether the thing has been so bequeathed or not.  Only then may the judges have leave to proceed, because they cannot decide whether  they have cognisance at the outset.>4
When the parties have appeared in court.
 When the parties have appeared in court, the plaintiff and he of whom he complains  and the judges, or some of these, let the plaintiff put forward his intentio against them  in this way. I, A., complain of B. that he has wrongfully troubled and oppressed me  by drawing me into plea in court christian with respect to my lay fee, that is, such.  And let him describe the kind of land or other tenement, or if it concerns debts and  chattels which are not etc., let him then make clear the kind of debts and chattels of  which he is impleaded, and that B. has done this contrary to the prohibition, and  that he has thereby incurred damage to the value etc.
Of proving his intentio.
 In order to support and strengthen his intentio, let him put forward the complaint  made to them5 in court, reduced to writing, if possible, and say that he produced the  prohibition of the lord king to them at such place and on such a day in a full assembly,6  and that they nevertheless proceeded at the suit of him against whom he complains,  in such a way that they admitted the proofs of witnesses and the like, or that because  he, the plaintiff, refused to obey their judgments, they excommunicated him
