    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 Public Defender:

    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.

    Please Accept or Decline any nominations you receive.

    Yours,
    The Election Office

    Thanks Bacon, but i'll have to Decline. I'm happy with just a wee role as Mayor of South Bootia :) Also, I probably wouldn't have time. School has started again...

    Well, school's started for me as well, but I still have plenty of free time.

    As a matter of fact, I'm supposed to be in school now, but I've come down with a case of strep throat and will be home all day today and tommorow. Thats plenty of free time :D

    I have decided to decline my nomination, so I may more fully go for the positions of Science Leader and/or Governer.
