Highlight

Dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction is generally appropriate if the plaintiff fails to exhaust administrative remedies because failure to exhaust those remedies precludes making a claim in court.
The Industrial Commission has extremely broad and comprehensive powers, which are continuous and exclusive, to regulate oil and gas development in this state.
A judgment entered by a court without subject matter jurisdiction is void and can be vacated.
