Membership3 Justices

The Supreme Court is the judicial branch of The Leftist Assembly. It consists of three Justices appointed by the Secretary and approved by citizens in individual confidence votes.

Each Justice's term lasts for approximately three months from the date of their confirmation until the date of the next Secretary's Supreme Court appointment confirmations.

This body handles legal disputes between citizens, hosts court cases to settle criminal charges, votes on said criminal charges upon the conclusion of a fair and public hearing, and is the highest authority on the interpretation of all regional law as per the Court Procedure Act.

History

Tiered Justices

The Legal Standard Act was proposed by Llorens in the 5th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 18-3, on 21 May 2017. As per its changes, the positions of Chief Justice, First Justice and Second Justice, held at the time by New Lonopolian Empire, Rathfarnham and Llorens respectively, were each renamed to Justice and given equal voting power on all legal proceedings of the Ministry of Law.

Independent judiciary

The Judicial Separation Act was proposed by Llorens in the 7th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 19-1, on 6 November 2017. As per its changes, the legislature and judiciary were completely separated following the December 2017 general election, with Justices instead being appointed by the Secretary and approved by citizens in individual confidence votes. The bill also officially named the judiciary as the Supreme Court.

Civil and criminal law

The Civil Cases legislative package was proposed by Dawtania in the 14th General Assembly, with a referendum passing 37-15 on 10 August 2019, and one subsequent statute law amendment passed by the General Assembly, 3-2. As per its changes, civil lawsuits and criminal cases were officially separated, distinguished by the dealing with non-criminal and criminal laws respectively, as well as the title of the accusatory party being changed from prosecutor to plaintiff for civil lawsuits.
