    The Judge Advocate is part of the Judicial Branch along with the Chief Justice and Public Defender, and is tasked with upholding, clarifying and reviewing all changes to the Constitution and its supporting laws through Judicial Reviews, and upholding the rights of all citizens through Investigations. The Judiciary will carry out all its tasks in a fair, impartial, public and speedy manner.

    The Judge Advocate will act as the prosecution to an accused citizen


    Please submit nominations for the Judge Advocate in this thread and Accept or Decline any nominations you may receive. Self nominations are allowed. Citizens may only run for one elected position.

    Nominations will close and elections open 00:00 GMT on the 28 October (that’s 8pm EDT 27 October).

    Thank you greekguy, vikingruler, and mhcarver for the nomination to the most Supreme Court in the world, but I must Decline. First of all, we have two qualified candidates for this position, so the race is on. I would not want to impede on their contest.

    Secondly, right after I became a citzen of this great nation, Chieftess ignored a legal instruction posted by a Governor in her capacity as Designated Player. For me this has happened way too many times and appears to be merely a trophy that CT takes homes each DG. The bad part about this is that nothing has ever been done about this, and I could not justify my existance on a High Court interpreting the Constitution for a nation where this has happened and is sure to happen again.

    My Forum time is now severly limited, so posting doesn't come very often. A position on the Judiciary would fit this time crunch better than other positions, but I wouldn't want to risk holding up the Court on a decision.

    A bit long winded, true. ;) But I don't get to post often.

    Guys, c'mon. We all read between the lines that CT is beta testing Civ 4. A mistake was made because she's used to a slightly different system.

    I'm beta testing City of Villians, and blew to my supergroup in City of Heroes a rather large change that was coming - it happens.

    Now, how it was handled was pretty bad. A simple, "Sorry, I'm confused this with something else that I'm working on. My bad." would have fixed much of it. If need be, a PM to the Justices who could dismiss the case would have clearly corrected things. The mod stick was a bit heavy handed.

    Please, it's over and done with. If you object to it, post in the DP thread that you don't want her as DP because she can't follow the instructions.

    in fact she has admitted to that... she uses her moderator powers to alter the game, she imposes time limits on post games, and she attempted to choose the constitution for us

    well, I'm done with my rant, onto the campaign!!!
    Are there any questions?
