    All members of the judiciary share several traditional rights and responsibilities:

    Post polls and discussion on interpretations of the Constitution, Code of Laws, and Code of Standards.
    Do not have Deputies but may appoint Pro-Tem officials (Pro-Tem Justice, Pro-Tem Defendant and Pro-Tem Advocate) if they are unable to fulfill their duties. Pro-Tem officials have all of the rights and responsibilities of the officials they are filling in for but are a temporary position and must surrender their pro-tem status upon the request of the official.
    Participate in Judicial Review to determine the legality of proposed amendments, laws and standards.
    Initiate and participate in Judicial Review to interpret and clarify existing amendments, laws and standards.
    Initiate and participate in Judicial Review to dismiss investigations as having "No Merit".
    Post Legislative polls that have passed Judicial Review.

    The following duties are assigned to the Associate Justice:

    Is tasked with ensuring all public investigations are performed correctly with deference to the presumed innocence of the accused.
    Will ensure that the accused understands the charges against them and what rules were purportedly broken so the accused can mount a valid defense.
    Will perform as defender, if so wished by the accused.

    The following duties are assigned to the Chief Justice:

    Perform as needed in the positions of Public Defender and Judge Advocate in the absence of either official.
    Is responsible for posting the current census at the beginning of each term.
    Is responsible for updating and maintaining the Judicial Log.
    Is responsible for monitoring investigation threads to keep them on topic and accurate.

    Please Accept or Decline any nominations you receive.

    Yours,
    The Election Office

    I'm rather suprised that I've been nominated at all here, since I've kept out of judicial matters up to this point.

    Still, for old time's sake, I'll accept.

    Is there no one else interested in upholding the laws of our land? After the events of term 1, I was expecting another 7-person race.

    Consider this a thread bump, so that all who are nominated here will know.

    Question for all Judicial nominees:

    Have you posted your viewpoint/analysis in the current batch of Judicial Review's? If you are a current member of the Judiciary, have you posted any questions in the current batch of JR's?

    I appreciate the nominations, but I must decline all nominations this term. I have three weeks of travel in February.
