Ruling: The Crown v. Karoly

Recommended Posts






DATE ARGUED: 14 Tobias’ Bounty 1760



The Duke of Sunholdt KCHE, Chairman

Mister John Huss, Associate Justice

Jasper Cardinal Renzfeld, Associate Justice



Mister Joseph Adler J.D. SSE, Solicitor-General

Sir Frederick Armas KHE J.D. SSE, Prosecutor

Mister Johnathan Ivory, Assistant Prosecutor



Mister John Everard Pruvia J.D. SSE, Defense Attorney




By unanimous decision, the Supreme Court has elected to acquit the defendant on all accounts, by virtue of a lack of evidence for any specific charge. 


    The witnesses presented by the prosecution entirely failed to prove, without doubt, that the defendant was guilty of any of the accused crimes. The defendant pleaded innocent on all counts, and despite arguments by the prosecution that the Bench failed to engage in clarifications in the defense’s opening statement, the Courts affirm that any such lack of clarity could not have had significant alteration to the outcome of the case, by unanimous decision.


    Notable, however, is the request of members of cabinet for the resignation of the Chief Justice, Sir John d’Arkent, for his ineptitude and failure to allow these clarifications that the prosecution felt severely damaged their case. The Courts of Law are not beholden to the executive branches of government, including the Solicitor-General, and even the Archchancellor. The Courts are instead beholden to the Senate, who may issue impeachment, as a check on the power of the Imperial Courts.


    These Courts have had two trials of major consequence, and both ended with the defeated side condemning the Court. The Supreme Court is, however, appointed by the Cabinet and confirmed by the Senate, both of which are extensions of the Emperor’s will. As His Imperial Majesty’s shield against the critical and varied matters of jurisprudence, it suffers the ire of the populace in judgement, popular or not. In this way, we preserve the integrity of the Emperor’s personal jurisprudence. Should the Courts succumb to political ire whenever an unpopular ruling is made, the Courts will instead be a whimsical body, and complete failure.


The Honorable, Sir John d’Arkent, KCHE

Baron of Selm, Duke of Sunholdt

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court


The Honorable, Monsignor Jasper de Sarkozy

Associate Justice of the Supreme Court


The Honorable, Jan Haas

Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
