THE JUDICIAL DEPARTMENT
 Article VIII
 
CONCEPT OF JUDICIAL POWER
It is the power to hear and decide cases pendingbetween parties who have the right to sue in courts of law and equity. Corollary to this dictum is the principleof locus standi of a litigant. He who is directly affectedand whose interest is immediate and substantial hasthe standing to sue. Thus, a party must show apersonal stake in the outcome of the case or an injuryto himself that can be redressed by a favorabledecision in order to warrant an invocation of the
court’s jurisdiction and justify the exercise of judicial
power on his behalf.
