The power of the court to rule on a case because the nature of the case and the type of relief sought are within he scope of the court’s power. This is the competence of a court to hear a claim based on the general content of the claim. For instance if the court is a small claims court and it can only hear cases for $5,000 and cannot issue injunctions then a case in which the party wants $25,000 and injunctive relief cannot result in what the complaining party wants in that the court because that court cannot grant the orders prayed for because it lacks subject matter jurisdiction. If the complaining party wants his alleged relief he would have to file the action in another court that can grant relief up to $25,000 and issue injunctions.
