    All members of the judiciary share several 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.
