Soudní novinky 19/16 (Žaloba na nudu v práci)

  • Unrepresented defendants crowd criminal courts ("The number of unrepresented defendants in criminal courts is increasing – but no one knows how big the problem is. That is the conclusion of research published in a week when the lord chief justice complained that civil courts are having to abandon the adversarial system to deal with the increasing number of litigants in person.")
  • Konečně něco pořádného! FRENCH MAN SUES EX-EMPLOYER FOR BOREDOM "(the French man demanding 360,000 euros ($416,000) from his ex-employer, claiming he was given so little to do at work he suffered from “bore-out.” The 44-year-old says his job as a manager at a perfume company was so tedious he became depressed and exhausted.")
  • The High Court has reserved judgment on whether British citizens living in other European countries are legally entitled to vote in the European Union referendum.
  • America’s Trial Court Judges: Our Front Line for Justice ("THE outcry over the Senate’s failure to hold hearings on Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court is fully justified. But that isn’t the only judiciary scandal on Capitol Hill. Even as the spotlight shines on the high court, the Senate has refused to confirm dozens of uncontroversial nominees to fill vacancies in the federal trial courts. (..) During President George W. Bush’s last two years in office, the Democratic-controlled Senate confirmed about 57 district court judges. Since Republicans took power in 2014, the Senate has confirmed only 15 of President Obama’s trial court nominees. This is an even bigger problem than Judge Garland’s stalled nomination. Trial court judges do the bulk of the work in the federal court system: Last year nearly 375,000 new cases were filed, while the Supreme Court justices issued just under 75 opinions. And because most trial court decisions are never appealed, they become the final word in significant disputes that affect millions of Americans.").
  • Roy Moore, Alabama Judge, Suspended Over Gay Marriage Stance ("An Alabama judicial oversight body on Friday filed a formal complaint against Roy S. Moore, the chief justice of the state’s Supreme Court, charging that he had “flagrantly disregarded and abused his authority” in ordering the state’s probate judges to refuse applications for marriage licenses by same-sex couples. As a result of the charges, Chief Justice Moore, 69, has been immediately suspended from the bench and is facing a potential hearing before the state’s Court of the Judiciary, a panel of judges, lawyers and other appointees. Among possible outcomes at such a hearing would be his removal from office.")
