AGO Opinions with Topic: FILIATION WARRANTS
AGO 1966 No. 109 >  October 4, 1966
COURTS - JUSTICE - JURISDICTION - FILIATION WARRANTS - 1961 JUSTICE COURT ACT
COURTS ‑- JUSTICE ‑- JURISDICTION ‑- FILIATION WARRANTS ‑- 1961 JUSTICE COURT ACT Though not determinative of the question, language expressed by the supreme court in the recent case of State v. Kline, 69 W.D.2d 109 [[69 Wn.2d 107]](1966, would seem to support a proposition that a filiation warrant issued under RCW 26.24.010 is a form of criminal process and hence has state‑wide [[statewide]] enforceability where issued by a justice court operating under the 1961 justice court act (chapter 299, Laws of 1961); however, only the court itself can finally decide this jurisdictional question.
