    Case 6-1, on whether Article B section 2C permits restrictions on citizen eligibility to hold an office.

    The Court has ruled 2-1 that Article B section 2c requires that every citizen must be eligible to hold some office, but that this does not extend to the point of requiring every citizen to be eligible to hold any office.

    Case 6-2, on whether impeachment of the triumvirate as a whole is constitutional, was initially accepted and then re-evaluated as having no merit.

    Case 6-3, on whether disallowing impeachment of the judiciary is constitutional, was initially accepted and then re-evaluated as having no merit.

    Case 6-4, on amending the CoL article on Designated Players, was ruled 3-0 as having no conflicts with existing laws and sent to the assembly for a vote. The amendment was ratified.

    Case 6-5, on how the restrictions of CoL 6.A should be interpreted, was decided 3-0 that a citizen who holds the same office for any part of two consecutive terms is prohibited from running for that office in the following term, but that this does not prevent the same citizen from being appointed to the same office.

    Case 6-6, an amendment on vacancies and appointments, was initially accepted using the form of the amendment presented by robboo. Donsig volunteered to resubmit a modified amendment to avoid having a re-review of the exact same text, given that the amendment had been ruled in conflict by the previous term. Although the grounds for that conflict had been struck down by this term's court, the revised amendment was accepted as a substitute for the original. The court ruled 3-0 that the new amendment did not conflict with the Constitution according to this court's ruling on case 6-1, with an objection noted by the Judge Advocate that he still disagrees with the result of 6-1 and would have ruled a conflict in this case if 6-1 had not already been decided. The amendment was presented to the assembly for ratification.

    Case 7-1
    The court ruled 2-0-1 that a cease fire is not the same as a peace treaty, so does not fall under the category of decisions which may only be made by a floor vote.

    Case 7-2
    The court ruled 2-0-1 that an amendment to remove the Minister of Culture from the CoL did not conflict with any existing law, and could proceed to ratification. The measure subsequently passed.
