I know what it means. Now he knows it's at the discretion of the court and there is no provision for him to file a motion. That helps.
Wrong as usual. All that means is one
option is the court can act on their own, as any court in America under the same facts as this case. You'll find that rule in every court, for obvious reasons.
Obviously the OP should have filed their own motion long before this, but that and
the court acting sua sponte are now off the table, so your post telling the OP what the court could have done was of no use to the OP.
But you did get to throw around some fancy legal jargon, sua sponte, that sounded cool and like you really knew what you were talking about.
