Supreme Justice of the Grand Unified Micronational
The Supreme Justice of the Grand Unified Micronational, commonly known as the Supreme Judge, is the head of the Supreme Court of the GUM.
The Supreme Court, formerly known as the Justice Commission is the organisation's intermicronational judicial organ. The Supreme Court has the power to try member states and other parties which it considered could have violated intermicronational law. The Court is constitutionally obliged to remain unbiased and independent in all its decisions.
Nevertheless, before August 2010, Robert Lethler was often seen as the man controlling the proceedings of the Justice Commission, sometimes with the collaboration of the Supreme Judges, who were often forced to follow him due to the absence of a legal convention. The Supreme Justice (formerly titled officially as the Chair of the Presidium of the Supreme Tribune, and often known as the Supreme Judge) is the head of the Supreme Court, nominated by the Chair and approved by the Quorum.
The Justice Commission brought New Scientopia to trial over negligent disclosure of information regarding New Europe, offered possible trial to the Kingdom of Camuria, introduced the illegalisation of hacking, compiled a list of intermicronational legal terms with clear definitions, and declared official opinions regarding events such as the Rhodesian War. Since the return of the organisation from its 2010-11 dormancy, the main duty of the Supreme Justice has been to interpret the Charter and to offer rulings and advice on GUM regulations and conventions.
The Supreme Justice is a post which can be seen a stepping-stone to becoming Chair, with nine Supreme Judges going on to become Chair immediately following their term. This is moreso the case than even the Vice-Chair of the organisation.
