I thought these agencies only had jurisdiction in the District of Colombia, Alaska, and Hawaii. Hmmmm. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1250935
Until they passed the Buck Act in 1940...
The Buck Act created "federal districts" within each state.
Can you say "unconstitutional"? lol
The feds needed a way to get around jurisdiction issues.
Us citizens are federal citizens...
who, as of 1940, live within a federal district...
and that "district court" you may occasionally get summoned to..
is the court of the "federal district" and not the state!
A federal court to sanction
residing in the federal district!
