duly adjudged

Adjudged according to law,–that is, according to the statute governing the subject, and implying the existence of every fact essential to perfect regularity of procedure, and to confer jurisdiction both of the subject matter and of the parties affected by the judgment. Any step in the cause before the court is necessarily the exercise of jurisdiction, and that step cannot be "duly" taken unless jurisdiction exists. The final step–in particular, the making of the judgment–cannot be "duly" taken unless all of the preliminary steps upon which it is based have likewise been "duly" taken. Brownell v Greenwich, 114 NY 518, 22 NE 24.
