Not a pack of lies ,

15 cards - one suit Ace to King plus two Jokers. All shuffled and placed on the table in a row. It does not matter if placed left to right or right to left as no card occupies it's original position either way, nor starts or finishes with two jokers. No court card (face card) or joker are at either end, nor in adjacent positions. The jokers have six cards between them. The card on the far left is one higher than on the far right, and is adjacent to a court card. Seven is two places left of two. Three is two places left of the rightmost Joker. The Ace is two places to the right of the King, and two left of the leftmost joker. Ten is two places to the left of five and three to the right of six. The Queen is two left of the Jack and four to the right of the Ace. The four is further left than the seven

Which order is each card if viewed L-R
Spoiler for Helpful to fault


I know I hav'nt named all the cards, that would be too EZ.

Can you make this two separate sentences?
"no card ... starts or ends with two jokers" doesn't make sense.
