Art. 117. The Federal Supreme Court, by means of avocatory, will re-establish its jurisdiction, whenever exercised by any of the lower judges or courts.
STF and avocatory: The Federal Supreme Court is sovereign when it comes to defining its jurisdiction. There is no conflict of jurisdiction between the STF and another Court. There is no appeal against the decision of the STF that decides on its competence. If any proceeding within its jurisdiction is in progress before any judge or court, the STF can invoke it, and against that there is no appeal.
