The Concept of Actions taken Suo Motu

It usually applies to actions of a court, this term may also be applied to actions by government agencies and individuals acting in official capacity.

One situation in which a party might encourage a judge to move sua Motu occurs when that party is preserving a special appearance usually to challenge jurisdiction, and therefore cannot make motions on its own behalf without making a general appearance. Common reasons for an action taken sua Motu are when the judge determines that the court does not have the matter's jurisdiction or that the case should be moved to another judge because of a conflict of interest, even if all parties disagree.
