The Uppermost Court | El Cort Pü Inalt

The three-member Uppermost Court (Cort pü Inalt) renders all judicial verdicts and interprets the laws, including the 1997 Organic Law. Its members are nominated by an act of the Ziu and this nomination must be approved by the Crown. Once approved, the justice is appointed and takes his place on the bench, and serves at the pleasure of the Ziu.

According to provisions of Organic Law, justices are required to wear appropriate judicial finery, including a judicial wig, when performing the business of the Court. Precedent has been established that draping a paper napkin over the judicial head is sufficient to meet this Organic requirement, although the Ziu has authorized that an actual powdered wig be given to the custody of the Senior Justice.

The Honourable Justices of the Court have the title Cadě del Cort Pü Inalt del Regipäts Talossan. The Justice having the longest tenure on the Court is known as the Senior Justice and directs the business of the Cort.

In addition to provincial courts, the national Ziu has chartered one inferior court, the Magistrate's Court. Decisions of that court may be appealed to directly the Uppermost Court.
