Supreme Court of the Sorrenian Federation
|Supreme Court of The Sorrenian Federation|
|Goruchaf Lys o Ffederasiwn Sorrenian|
|Location||Sorrenian Federal District of Levaria|
|Authorized by||Federal statute & regulation|
|Term length||6 months|
The Supreme Court is the senior and ruling judiciary body in the Sorrenian Federation, responsible for administrative, civil and criminal law. Although unofficially used on several accounts, the Supreme Court has only ever officially held cases twice, due to the low crime-rate in the Federation. Theoretically, States and Provinces are afforded the right to regional Courts, however the need has never arisen, so minor cases are also dealt with by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is headed by the Supreme Judge, who is currently Llewelyn Lawton.
Freedom of Speech Case
Shortly after the controversial Sorrenian Union of Fascists was formed by Eren Lewis, , criticizing the "vile Bolshevism", in reference to the large Socialist sector in Sorrenia, also calling President Alexei Janiszewski a "marionette under the control of Miles of Sorrenia" - he then went on to refer to the Jewish people as the "subhuman Semites". This caused Janiszewski to contact the Supreme Court, to have Lewis punished for hate speech. Although the majority of Sorrenians described Lewis' statements as "sickening", they also stated the importance of freedom of speech. The Supreme Court and National Assembly therefore denied the case, however warned Lewis about making such comments again. Eren Lewis later dissolved the SUF, and described the whole movement as an "experiment", although he stated that he did indeed hold Fascist views.
