Ruling name Date issued Vote Summary of ruling
#1 (Ministerial Policy Application) 3 Jul 2019 Supported by Auven, Llorens, and Morvan.
  • Determined that Ministers may apply relevant policy as legislated by the General Assembly, rather than the General Assembly being required to vote on the application of each policy
  • Initiated by a dispute over Minister of Foreign Affairs Hecknamistan's decision to close the embassy with The Verusation Federation without consulting the General Assembly, which was deemed legal
#2 (Public Legislative Voting) 6 Jul 2019 Supported by Auven, Llorens, and Morvan.
  • Determined that the status quo practice of the General Assembly voting in a private channel and releasing the vote outcome publicly satisfied the requirement for all votes to be "viewable to the public"
#3 (Election Candidate Departure) 6 Sep 2019 Supported by Auven, Llorens, and Morvan.
  • Determined that an election candidate is not immediately disqualified if they depart the region and do not publicly state their withdrawal from the race, though they may communicate this through the Supreme Court
  • Initiated by the departure of Grand Proudhonia, a Secretary candidate in the September 2019 general election, from the region
