IANAL and choose this very basic, if not obvious, example to setup the question.
Bob is tried for shooting a person. Bob pleads innocence in the form of self defense: the other person drew his pistol and pointed it at Bob.
The findings of fact reveal:
- Bob was an armed bank-robber at the time of the shooting
- Security video show the security guard drew his service revolver and Bob fired: striking the guard
Is there a concise legal phrase or word that communicates the notion that because of Bob's action (robbing a bank), Bob is unable to invoke self-defense?
Possibly: Bob lacks / forfeited standing to invoke self-defense?
