Zyvetskistaahn for Justice
Hello, I am running for Justice. I have been Justice before and you can get a sense of my approach from the opinions I have authored in requests for review and the trials I have been involved in (links below). I am an experienced Justice and have a robust knowledge of TNP’s law from my long service in that role and as Speaker. I enjoy writing decisions, as can probably be guessed, and have moderated criminal trials effectively. I would do my fair share of work on the Court (presuming some comes up between now and the next term).
I do not come into this intending on pushing for any reform of the Court rules or the like. I think that the Court, by and large, works effectively and there are limits on what changes it, as a primarily reactive body, can make in any event. Also, this is a partial term and changes to the Court’s processes tend to take quite a while to agree. That said, I would involve myself in any ongoing discussions and work constructively with Sil and Kronos.
I also want to say something about my opponents. I was on the Court with Lord Dominator (in the guise of Lady Raven Wing) and, as will be guessed given our agreement in the cases we heard, I think that their approach to the sorts of issues that the Court needs to resolve is a sound one and they were effective in the management of criminal trials. Gorundu has not served on the Court before but I wholeheartedly agree that service as Speaker is a good experience for preparation as a Justice and I think their approach as Prosecutor in TNP v New Francois shows good instincts for criminal proceedings. The Court would be well served by either of them on the bench.
Naturally, I am open to questions.
Official Opinions in requests for review: Speaker’s Power to Extend Voting Periods; Regional Ban of Kirana; Form of the Oath of a Delegate; Speaker’s Power to Schedule Votes; Constitutionality of Vague Laws and Gross Misconduct; Power of the Speaker to Direct Deputy Speakers.
Verdicts and Sentences in criminal trials: Whole India; Ikea Rike; Slatos; Ihese; New Francois.
Reasoned decisions as an individual Justice: Nolo Contendere plea in TNP v New Francois; Evidence in TNP v Ihese; Ejection and ban in TNP v New Francois; Denial of Request for Review Banning of Finnish Ougyza; Denial of Request for Review Angshire/Crown Isles; Denial of Request for Review Acting Speaker; Denial of Request for Review Loss of Citizenship by Government Officials.
(there are also some denials of indictments but they are by and large the same as each other, if you want to see them, however, they are in the Court Filings thread to be seen)
