    The First High Court of The World Senate

    Post  Burnesrael on Thu Apr 26, 2012 11:17 pm

    The Burnesraelite Court

    I’d like to briefly introduce how my Court System will run. This document is subject to change, as more ideas are brought to my attention.

    There will be a High Court, Criminal Court, and a Pseudo Court. The Chief Justice will preside over all three.

    High Court- - In this Court, matters of Constitutionality of Governmental actions will be heard and decided.

    Criminal Court- - Those nations that break Regional Law will be called here to be sentenced or acquitted.

    Pseudo Court- This court will be for Civilian Cases that are minor in nature, and may or may not involve real occurrences and/or real people(nations). This will be the court that we will spend time in while there are no large matters of Constitutionality or Criminalism in the Region. It will be largely for fun, and for the training of Lawyers. If we only ever had serious cases, I think I’d go crazy.

    Case Handling:
    Evidence- All appropriate evidence will be messaged to the Chief Justice by forum PM before the trial. He will determine the legality of the evidence to be used in court. All evidence for a case must be turned into the Courts before a trial begin. If evidence is not turned in before the trial, but is used in the trial, the Chief Justice, as Judge, reserves the right to call that any piece of evidence be unrecorded in the case and ignored. The Chief Justice will determine the legality of all evidence in each court.

    Order of Presentation- The prosecuting faction will always present their case first.

    Slander- Slander will not be tolerated in any of this Region’s Courts. Two warnings will be issued for slander in the Court room, unless deemed to be exceptionally disruptive or harmful. In the latter case, the Chief Justice preserves the right to call for any nation to be removed from the court room.

    Contempt of the Court- If the Chief Justice declares that a nation has disobeyed or has been disrespectful to the Court’s authority, the Chief Justice can call for the disruptive nation to be ejected from the court.

    No Editing Clause- In order to keep the integrity of the Court system, editing of posts and presentations after they are posted in Court will not be permitted. In order to make sure that edits are not made in Court, the opposition shall repost by quotation the exact post of the other party’s presentation as soon as possible after it is stated. Basically, if Nation A is facing Nation B in court, then after Nation A presents something (posts), Nation B must quote the exact post by Nation A as soon as possible after Nation A posts it. This will create a system where nations will not be able to edit their posts, and change their arguments. The opposition will post the quote because they will have incentive to prove that the nation they are facing is not following proper Court room procedure, and incentive not to change the quote if the other nation edits their argument. If nations edit their court room posts, or do not quote exactly the oppositions posts, the Chief Justice has the right to find them in Contempt of the Court. If a better method, as determined by Chief Justice, of retaining post integrity in the Court room is found, then this clause will be ignored.


    Thank you World Senate,
    WA Delegate and Chief Justice,
    Burnesrael

    Fixed the Permissions, so no one can edit their previous message in the Judicial Forum.

    Burnesrael, I really like this post outlining the court. I think we may have to add this to the Judical Article in the Constitution.

    It's working. Edited messages will show an alert at the bottom of the message, just like mine did.
