Yes, this is waiting on CotC comex to reassign it to you per
Rule 1447 (c).  The database already thinks you've been
reassigned (I entered it before realizing that the reassignment
is Plato-Pragmatic; will fix the datestamp once comex acts).

Scanning the database, here are all past CFJs that were remanded:

Amend rule 1868 to read

      Whenever a CFJ that has not been judged has no trial judge
      assigned, the Clerk of the Courts shall as soon as possible
      assign an eligible judge to it by announcement.  The assigned
      judge remains its trial judge until recused.

      Every active player is eligible to be assigned as a trial judge
      unless made ineligible by the rules.  Entities other than active
      players are always ineligible.

      If the Clerk of the Courts errs in good faith by assigning an
      ineligible judge then the assignment stands.  In this case, the
      Clerk of the Courts may recuse the judge by announcement
      accompanied by a description of eir error.

Repeal rules 698 and 2133.

[Puts the important bits of the three rules into one shorter rule.
Leaves out the crud, in particular R698's elaborate procedure for
situations that are much better handled by the new form of R1871.]

Amend rule 1871 by replacing the text "all open CFJs without a Trial
Judge" with "all CFJs awaiting trial judge assignment".

[The definition of "open CFJ" from R1868 was too restrictive.  This
does better without any special terminology.]

Amend rule 1826 by replacing the text "after a case is closed" with
"after a case has been judged".

[The term "closed CFJ" has also gone away.]

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
      relevant.

      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.

with

      Appellate Orders are executed by being published by the Lead
      Judge of a Board of Appeals.

instead of indirectly via the CotC.]

{{{

Retitle rule 402 to "Office of Speaker" and amend it to read

      The speaker is an office.

      If an active player who is not the speaker has won the game
      within the past week, e may become the speaker, thus removing
      any previous speaker from the office, by announcement, unless
      someone else has become speaker within the preceding 90 days.
      If the legality of an attempted installation of this type is not
      challenged within a week, then it is effective even if later
      found to be illegal.

      A speaker who became speaker within the preceding 90 days cannot
      be replaced by Agoran Consent if e is one of those whose
      objections are counted in the Agoran Consent procedure.

[Making the speaker an office means we can make use of officer
defaults elsewhere, such as the IADoP reporting the officeholder.
Change installation by "any player" to self-installation to prevent
someone becoming speaker involuntarily.  More explication of the
restrictions on replacing a speaker.  Drop the "inattentive speaker"
bit because the speakership is no longer a critical administrative
office.]

Amend rule 1006 by replacing the text "an Officer or the Speaker" with
"an officer".

[With the speaker being an officer, this is now redundant.]

It's been six months, and we basically don't use it at all.  Time to
shut it down?  The official (non-wiki) web page and the NomicWiki pages
are together doing everything we wanted from a wiki.

Per CFJ 1263, you are now a player (as of your message).  Do you wish
to be referred to by any particular nickname?
