proto-proposal: public judicial process
Amend rule 591 to read
The judge of a CFJ judges it by publishing eir judgement, along
with any arguments, evidence, or other material that e considers
For a trial judge, a judgement is exactly one of the following:
TRUE, FALSE, or DISMISSED.
Amend rule 1826 to read
A motion is a formal request made by a player to the judge of a
CFJ. A motion is made by announcement, which must clearly
identify the CFJ to which the motion applies.
The judge of a CFJ must either grant or deny each motion that
applies to that CFJ within five days of it being made. If a
judge fails to grant or deny an applicable motion within five
days of it being made, the Clerk of the Courts shall recuse the
judge and assign a new one. If a motion is made after a case
has been judged, and the original judge of that case is not
active or is not a player, then the Clerk of the Courts shall
assign a new judge.
A judge grants or denies a motion by publishing eir
determination, along with any arguments, evidence, or other
material that e considers relevant. The effect of granting a
motion depends on its nature, but generally amounts to requiring
the judge to perform as requested by the motion. A denied
motion has no further effect.
Amend rule 1805 by replacing the text
Appellate Orders are executed by being sent to the Clerk of the
Courts by the Lead Judge of a Board of Appeals, but do not take
effect until their publication by the Clerk of the Courts.
Appellate Orders are executed by being published by the Lead
Judge of a Board of Appeals.
[Makes everything in the judicial process work by announcement,
instead of indirectly via the CotC.]
