An Amendment to Establish C.III.XIV

An Amendment to Establish C.III.XIV

BE IT ENACTED BY THE CONGRESS HERE ASSEMBLED THAT:

Section 1: A new section to Article Three of the State of Firestone Constitution shall be instituted: Section Fourteen-Court Orders

Section 2: C.III.XIV shall state: Judges of all State Courts, Be they District, Appellate, Supreme, or other courts of law defined by the legislature, shall have the authority to issue Court Orders. A Court Order is a document (publicly released PDF or Firestone Forum) issued by a seating judge requiring certain actions to be portrayed by the individual, group, agency, department, etc. under penalty of contempt. However, a Court Order must pertain to a specific case or preceding, said case or preceding must be listed in the order, as well as the Judge’s name, affected individual or groups, and an expiry date if the ordered action is temporary. For cases civil or criminal, Court Orders may be issued, upon a conviction for relevant charges, suspension from a state or county agency, service, or department, termination of the same, and imprisonment. Orders for appearance have their own separate section under this article. All court ordered punishments must be neither cruel nor unusual as to be determined by an Appellate Court, or court with appellate jurisdiction. An aggrieved person who is the subject of a Court Order May appeal the order, if it be by a court with criminal or civil jurisdiction alone, to a higher court with appellate jurisdiction. That court may decide to void the order, removing all its effects and declaring its originating case (assuming the reason for the appeal isn’t because of the fact the order didn’t pertain to a case or preceding), or uphold it. If the case involving the order is challenged in any court with appellate jurisdiction, based on the case alone, and is voided, then any court order revolving around it shall also be voided. If an appellate court upholds the order, it may be challenged finally to the Supreme Court; where it may again be upheld, or voided. The ruling of the Supreme Court is final and may not be construed, ignored, or invalidated by lower courts.

Section 3: The Firestone Judicial Branch shall be tasked with enforcing this amendment.

Section 4: This amendment shall go into immediate effect upon being passed by both houses of Congress.

Section 4: All legislation in conflict with this is rendered null and void
