History[edit | edit source]
New Republic[edit | edit source]
The Court was held in the Galactic Courts of Justice Building. The members of the Court of Justice were selected by the Senate Justice Council from a list of nominees presented by the Chief of State and then confirmed by a floor vote. The First Justice was head of the Court, and was elected by the other members of the Court from among their numbers, who were addressed as "Your Honor(s)".
Nominally independent, the power of the Court of Justice was limited by its narrowly defined jurisdiction: to review charges of violations of the Charter by members of the other branches of the New Republic's government. The Court of Justice did not serve as the court of last appeal for ordinary civil and criminal cases; those were settled by local judicial authorities on member worlds.
