    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 would like to nominate a few people if that is ok. :)
    (In alphabetical order) Cyc, Donsig, DZ, RM, RoddyVR and Wlievens.
    I would also encourage anyone else to stand who has an interest in the judiciary. It is not very glamorous but there is lots to do and it is fun. :)

    Thanks for the nomination anyway.

    Thanks DZ, but I will Decline. One term of madness is enough for me. I'll be putting some energy into correcting some of the holes that have been found.

    I would like to annouce my own self nomination and acceptance. :)

    I feel it's time I jumped back in the legal side of things, mainly to straighten out some things I feel need a bit of ironing.

    Question for the candidates:

    1. One issue that keeps returning over and over is the role of unwritten "traditions" in Fanatican law. What is your position on this question?

    2. In the past two terms, there have been times of resounding criticism from citizens, with no action from those same citizens to correct what they believe to be wrong. What do you plan to do to reduce this?

    3. How thick is your skin? :D

    If it's not too late I will accept the nomination. If I wasn't really nominated then I'll nominate my self and accept.

    1. Some I like, some I don't. I have no problem using the laws as they are written to hinder those unwritten traditions that I detest.

    2. Nothing can be done to get the Congress off it's behind. As a member of the judiciary I would continue to point out the flaws in our laws and get as much of the invalidated laws off the books as possible. Though it seems that we have a couple recalcitrant mods who will not edit the Three Books when the Judiciary legally renders a section of it unconstitutional.

    3. It gets thicker every demogame.
