A simple building, this courthouse has a gold-washed statue of Balance in the front lawn. A sign hangs there: "Judge needed-inquire within!"

"We need a judge for this courthouse, one who is honorable and not affiliated with /any/ organization. Any takers?"

Malmagor and WXDruid are approved judges.

Cases:

Teraa's murder trial
Jacklu's murder trial
Fishies's assault and trafficking trial
Commander Kitsune's murder trial
Ghost_Humanoid's kidnapping trial

I, Malmagor Andrigal, am willing to take the post

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-21, 10:51 PM
" Malmagor Andrigal, do you swear to render judgement fairly and without regard to station or ties to any organization, based on the evidence and arguments presented in this courthouse?"

Wukei

"I say we should have at least 1 person from each guild that states that he's okay. Otherwise it's a corrupt system of the gufipolice being not only the police but the jury and executioner."

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-21, 10:53 PM
"Agreed. On behalf of the GUFIPOLICE, if he swears the oath, I accept Malmagor as judge."

Fishies
2006-05-21, 10:53 PM
"But the mafia obviously doesn't exist, so we don't need their say."

Kord
2006-05-21, 10:54 PM
I, Kord, hitman for the non-existent Mafia, approve of this selection as Malmagor Andrigal for the judge of this courthouse.

Wukei
2006-05-21, 10:55 PM
"However, I'm not part of the non-existant mafia. If they did exist, all I would be to them is a way to ship things from point A to point B...though I would occasionally hang out at their place for the company."

I, as a member of the masked troupe, agree that Prowl seems impartial.

Wukei
2006-05-21, 11:02 PM
"I suppose that I speak for all of the companies on the dock when I say that I approve."

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-22, 12:20 PM
"Very well. I believe that is everyone. You are confirmed to be Judge if you swear the oath, Malmagor."

wxdruid
2006-05-22, 12:26 PM
I am also willing to be a judge.

Madmal
2006-05-22, 12:30 PM
tell me the oath, and i will swear it

Madmal

Yes I Swear

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-22, 01:01 PM
"Welcome to your courthouse, Judge.

WXDruid, if you wish to become a judge as well, I will vouch for you, but you must be supported by the other groups as well."

"Okay, now I believe we need a public prosecuter and a public defender. Any takers?"

Idiotbox90
2006-05-22, 01:37 PM
Does it matter if the defender is a member of an organization? If not, I'll do the job.

Madmal
2006-05-22, 01:38 PM
i think it depends...if this only for the trial of Teraa? in that case, it might mork...

Reijas
2006-05-22, 01:40 PM
I think the hope was for this to be a permanent situation.

Wukei
2006-05-22, 01:41 PM
"I believe the defender should be per group. For example, I'll be willing to be public defender for those of the docks and the non-existant mafia. Someone closer to the legal sides should defend them."

Idiotbox90
2006-05-22, 01:47 PM
Yes, each group should have a lawyer.

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-22, 02:13 PM
"Yes, I intend for this to be permanent, and if the accused or accusor is not affiliated, we should have public lawyers for their use."

Reijas
2006-05-22, 02:32 PM
Judge Prowl, I am bringing a Dispute to you for review and judgement. *Please review the following documentation. *I have asked for representatives from the groups to come and give you their statements.

I will try to gather additional Information for you as you deem necessary.

Evidence and Cease and Desist Order (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=silly;action=display;num=1148238207; start=60#62)

In addition please review Amiria's involvement in this situation, as she has brought her involvement in this matter to the police personally and of her own free will, I ask that her punishment be considered with these actions weighed. Summary of her actions (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=silly;action=display;num=1147729222; start=225#234)

I acknowledged him in name of the temples, but i would like to protect my own case.

Supagoof
2006-05-22, 04:20 PM
The GUFIPOLICE approve of Prowl & Wxdruid for Judgeship.

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-22, 04:41 PM
"Judge Prowl, the original case that required this building still stands, namely Jackly vs. Julienne Teraa. Julienne Teraa stands accused of murder.

I will gather the parties involved, your Honor."

Sneak
2006-05-22, 04:54 PM
Don Sneak walks in. "Would I happen to be one of those aforementioned parties, Detective?"

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-22, 04:56 PM
"You may be called as a witness, Don, but the primary parties are the deceased and Teraa. However, they both have yet to obtain legal counsel, and if you'd like to ask to be retained as such to Jacklu, you may."

Jacklu
2006-05-22, 05:04 PM
((I will be gone till later tonight, however I would be willing to let Don Sneak represent me in court. If he wants to of course...))

Jenny_Archer
2006-05-22, 06:48 PM
i'll retain idiotbox as my attourney

Wukei
2006-05-22, 07:27 PM
Before this gets started I'd just like to say that the docks approve of wxdruid as a second judge.

Idiotbox90
2006-05-22, 07:29 PM
All right.

Sneak
2006-05-22, 07:41 PM
"I'm not necessarily the best lawyer, but I'll do it anyway. Besides, my 'poodle' can make some VERY persuasive arguments." The cat sticks out its tongue.

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-22, 07:48 PM
"Very well. I will let the Judge handle the proceedings."

Jacklu
2006-05-22, 08:50 PM
I'm back, although I think I'll still let Don Sneak represent me.

"We need a judge for this courthouse, one who is honorable and not affiliated with /any/ organization. Any takers?"
Uhh... not to throw a monkey wrench in the works but... *tosses monkeywrench* Prowl is associated with an organization: NARF. He would not qualify according to the original requirements. Not questioning his honororable tendencies, 'm just sayin'. If you're going to make the rules for a place that needs to be lawful and impartial you ought to abide by them or risk seeming hypocritical and undermining your authori-taay.

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-22, 09:12 PM
"As far as I know, Narf has no influence in the Town proper. Therefore, I feel it is not a disqualification for judgehood"

Valda, Adlav and Samiam: the Jacked-Up Trinity
2006-05-22, 10:22 PM
Prowl has the Legion's full backing, and before the whole 'But he's a Narfian' crap starts spewing from your mouths (grody :P), Narf and the Legion are at peace. Like I said... Prowl for judge.

Fishies

"You will be tried by either the Honorable Prowl or the Honorable WXDruid, based off of your own statements and the evidence against you."

Z is Zulu time or Greenwich Mean Time or the time in England. I use that time zone all the time at work so that is what I will refer to. I am on Kansas time 10:40pm which is -5 hours from Zulu (0340Z now) and Tuesday, does this make it any clearer for you?

Madmal
2006-05-23, 12:19 AM
a couple of things before we start:
1) i need some help with the use of time zone, i've never put much attention to this and i see that now is necessary
2)the representatives post here their statements, right?
3) due to college, i'm not capable of performing my duties during the afternoon (once i learn more about this time zone issues, i'll try to settle this)
i'll be back tomorrow around 0900 am

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-23, 12:20 AM
((Yes, the people post here. It should be quite self-contained.))

wxdruid

I prefer to work everything from Zulu time. *

EDT -4 hours from Zulu
CDT -5 hours from Zulu

Is there a jury and what are the punishments?

"Prof. Ryshan Ynrith, I need to know the basics for the Fishies Trial

The names _____ vs _____
What Fishies is accused of
Who the Lawyers are (if you know)?
And what the official punishments are?"

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-23, 06:20 PM
"Fishies vs. Kord et ali; I believe ExRev and Kyrian (sp?) were also victims. The official charges are Assault and Battery, as well as Trafficking in Sentient Body Parts. Fishies should have his own defense, but we'll need to contact the others for statements or the like. Do we have a prosecuter?"

Sneak
2006-05-23, 06:29 PM
(( ExRev and Kyrian are one and the same, I believe... ))

wxdruid
2006-05-23, 06:35 PM
We'll get it worked out eventually then the system will be started and off we go.... :-)

I think for the actual trial we need to start a new thread to avoid interuptions and so if there are interuptions I can take care of them. Also, if we need to have a recess to wait on more information and so forth. How do you feel about this Prof. Ryshan Ynrith

Ryshan Ynrith
2006-05-23, 06:56 PM
((Agreed. A new thread for each trial, with the courthouse for posting general stuff. As you are presiding, I think you should start the Fishies trial thread.))

On the other hand Tiamat charges Reijas for meddling with religioud affairs

Supagoof
2006-06-01, 02:12 PM
Supagoof speaks up.


On that note, Reijas is excused for performing his duty to investigate crimes.

If performing his duty meddles into the affairs of temple, then perhaps the temple should clearly post what is and is not considered religious related.

He was investigating under the privilages of his badge, and his course lead him to the temple. If the temple is dropping the charges, it can not hold the officer involved in the investigation of those charges responsible. The police will not operate under wishy washy rules of pressing charges.

Supagoof
2006-06-02, 04:24 PM
When's my trial supposed to be?

Are we going to have a trial? I realise that the charges for theft have been dropped, but the other charges still stand (though the theft was to eliminate one of the clouds/draegoths thingy's that attacked the city) so it is again by the courts decision whether or not to dismiss the case.

Supagoof
2006-06-02, 05:07 PM
Unfortunately I will have to leave it to officer Reijas on that. He was the one who was attacked while making the arrests.

On another matter, you will have quite a few cases coming up. I have issued warrants for arrest for Balthor for his killing of Ghost Humanoid in Trog's Tavern that I witnessed, and other arrests for Balthor, Torand for the hit placed upon me in Sneaks Milk Bar. Also for attacking these assailants while they were attacking me, Kin the Demoneater, Jacklu, and Withrey all made lethal attacks, and have been issued a warrant for their arrest. (Though since they were trying to stop an assault on an officer and defend themselves, I would take that into consideration.)

Right, I should be able to deal with that as soon as I get approval to be a judge from Supagoof and Sneak. Wukei kinda gave a "yeah, it's okay" answer, but she answered IC that she wouldn't be able to approve me until she was rescued fom the zombie clowns and I might have to double check with Renrik ((he hasn't been around for a while so I just asked Idiotbox))

So my approval issues are as follows:
The Masked Troupe: Temporary Co-leader's okay with it, but I'll have to check with the official head I suppose
The non-existant mafia: Leader hasn't answered my PM
The Docks: current leader is kidnapped
The Police: Leader hasn't answered my PM

Krursk, I just have one question.....are you a member of any of the major organizations in town?

If not, then you may start the Emperor's trial and be on a semi-permanent basis until you get the last approvals.

Krursk
2006-06-05, 07:24 PM
Actually I'm part of two: the masked troupe and the non-existant mafia (see my sig, but you probably can't see the mafia one)

I just not judge in those in trials involving those groups if it's a problem

EDIT: I'm also a commissar, but since the commissars are me and Vanghar, I don't see that as much of a problem

wxdruid
2006-06-05, 07:28 PM
Being a member of those two could cause a problem, in that case I would prefer to wait until you hear from the police and the non-existant mafia. Do you mind waiting for their approval?

Yes, send me the link to the thread and I'll post the support publicly there.


Sneak's:

Sure.

Wukei's:(I'm sure it counts, if unofficial)

Yea, currently I'm kidnapped and can't give approval. I'll give approval as soon as I get back, though.

I have nothing against the idea. But I'm only a temporary leader. Just try to avoid judging cases involving the Troupe.

I apologize, I haven't been at the boards for a few days.

Krusk receives my approval, even though he is mafia. Should there be a conflict of interest, then a removal is in order, but for outside of that, we do need a few more judges to help with the court process. I know Emperor Valda has been awaiting trial for some time....

Why does the mafia have a vote? Not only does this group hold a vote when others don't, this vote is held entirely by a single, unelected person. Arbitrarily deciding what groups are significant is incerdibly undemocratic. Either we should allow every citizen a vote, or we could set up guidelines to classify groups based on predetermined criteria. Currently, two of the chosen groups are criminal organizations.

Krursk
2006-06-08, 02:33 PM
Basically, the voting is based around the biggest groups. If a mafiosi wanted to be a judge, they'd almost be guaranteed a seat as a judge under the system you are proposing, because the mafia have so many allies (the Troupe, everyone protected by the troupe). the current system works out that the judge basically has to have a clean criminal record (otherwise Supagoof wouldn't OK them), any fair dealing with the rest of the town (for all the others). Also the judge doesn't have a lot of power, only the ability to sentance criminals. Having everybody vote would make too much bother for such a small position.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents (thank the gods I'm not in Australia, Australia doesn't have any currency cheaper than 5 cents)

Pop Goes the Weasel
2006-06-08, 02:55 PM
But, you have to remember, the mafia does not exist! ;)

I just don't think the mafia should be allowed to have a say in who the lawmen are. That seems to defy logic. Naturally, someone who the mafia has a vendetta against (say, an officer who arrested a major member) won't be able to become a judge, due to the fact that they are too good at investigating crime. I suggest:
A vote from each of the largest groups (the ones that are currently in place, as well as a few more to spread the vote out). Each group will delegate its vote in a manner it chooses, either having each member vote, and the final vote is sent in through an electoral fasion; alternatively, the vote could be decided entirely by the leader. Now, if a candidate gains a majority of votes, he requires two more things.

1. Police approval
2. Approval by a majority of current judges

Krursk
2006-06-08, 02:59 PM
Well, if you're that good at crime scene investigation, you shouldn't leave the force and become a judge anyway!

Also we officially have 4 judges, but only 2 actually do anything, so would you need approval from 1 judge who does nothing, or (assuming you didn't need approval from the non-active judges) how could you get 50% approval if there are 2 of us? Basically, it'd be giving me and Wxdruid a veto

The judges currently:
Macciavelli
Prowl
Wxdruid
Me

Pop Goes the Weasel
2006-06-08, 03:12 PM

That's probably a good idea. The only thing I'm worried about is that the town is made up of about 40% criminals. That's not good...

Krursk
2006-06-08, 04:15 PM
no, 40% of the town is affliated with criminal organisations. A very small minority actually commit crimes. All I can think of in the way of criminals who commit crimes without a greater good in mind are Balthor, Kylee and Fishies

Pop Goes the Weasel
2006-06-08, 04:35 PM
Well, that was a deliberate exaggeration, but the mafia is a very large and influential criminal organization. The system we use right now is not problematic, so I guess we don't need to worry about changing it unless we come across problems. Right now, does a judge require unanimous approval? I'm just not comfortable with the mafia having power of veto.

Krursk
2006-06-08, 04:38 PM
Yeah, but the mafia leader is not really grudge bearing. I'd worry more about the masked troupe having a veto when Renrik gets back. Also, I like the idea of the judges getting a veto. Perhaps we can expand on this [insert sadistic smile here]

Pop Goes the Weasel
2006-06-08, 04:57 PM
How about a simple majority vote from a large list of groups? The electoral college is a powerful system.

Masked Troupe;
Mafia;
Docks;
A single vote from the churches;
A single vote from a group of shopkeeps;
A single vote from a group of taverns;
Each of the five wards has their own vote;

That's eleven votes in total, enough to have a majority.

Then, the candidate will require approval from the chief of police and the judges. This gives the judicial system more power in deciding its own members than the four previous groups. The old system put too much power in non-governmental bodies, effectively creating an oligarchy.

wxdruid
2006-06-08, 07:49 PM
I agree with the above arguments, but aren't the first organizations under the ward system, so wouldn't they be voting twice. I think we should just vote under the ward system (once it is set up).

just my thoughts. :)

Pop Goes the Weasel
2006-06-08, 08:18 PM
Yeah, the ward system is better. I fell like an idiot for not thinking of it myself. Now what we need is a way for a ward to democratically pick a vote (a ward elector system, with elected ward representatives).

As a citizen of this town, I wish to file an appeal for the immediate
parole of Gezina van den Vecht.

Are you aware that this woman has a young son, between 4 and 5 years
old, who is currently without a guardian!

The boy is sitting in the tavern. He has consumed an alcoholic
beverage once already, and had to be talked away from taking a cigar
off of the floor.

That is a particularly rough establishment, and is no place for a child.
Especially not one so young.

This is completely unacceptable. She must be paroled at once for
family hardship!

The Town is in chaos. Normally, I don't mind that, but I have a young
daughter of my own. I cannot stand by and see a child cast adrift like this,
especially not in the current situation.

In closing, I can't say I've had the best impression of Gezina so far, but
no mother deserves this.

{file}Case of Darth Xerillium vs. Asgard (Appollo). Information can be found starting here (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=silly;action=display;num=1153449965; start=75). Summary - DX came in to have Asgard arrested based upon signs of Asgard leading the Goblin uprising. Asgard came in shortly afterward to "confess" his involvement with the goblins. Since no officer was in the station, no arrest was made, though I did inform them that we reserved that right should we need too, and that I would inform you about a trial being started.

((On a personal note, this should the goblin situation should be put before the council. The goblins in town vs the other citizens. I understand there were quite a few deaths on both sides, and a council decision should be made on how to treat and prosecute those involved in the uprising. But the story line arc might have to go through court to have that type of meeting called.))

Let it also be noted that to prosecute the goblins would cause more hard feelings, especially taking into account the fact that all the goblin leaders are now dead, and the goblin population is in ruins. To prevent any further trouble, it would be best to punish only the goblins who were willing and loyal sub-commanders to the more corrupt goblin instigators. There are about twenty such subcommanders left, and most of them are in hiding in the Shadow Depths. I can get them for you, if you want. We should also punish the human instigators, mainly the police officer(s) responsible for inciting the mob.))

I do not know how you stand to accuse me of godmodding, but it seems to be your de-facto rallying cry these days. It matters not whether or not someone godmods. Wukei will accuse them of it.

Let it be noted that there was no metagaming whatsoever. Just because our dark-fantasy/urban chaos style of play does not suit your romantic subplots does not mean that we are "metagaming". We are simply playing through the plots of the slums and the shadows.

Let it be noted that the single event of double posting that occured was strictly necessary in relation to the story's well-being, and that the first words of the post were an OOC apology for having to double-post.

Supagoof
2006-07-27, 04:08 PM
((Hmmm, so the question would still need to be answered as to how to handle to goblin uprising.

I don't, repeat, don't want the following comments to string out in another argument. If you don't feel the same way I do and wish to respond, please PM me, we can discus in further there.

I feel some fine points as an impartial outside viewer going back over the fight where all the god-modding took place need to be. Renrik did not god mod. [And don't accuse me of favoritism, since Renrik and I have had our disagreements in the past] Someone else did, and he acted in accordance to that. Looking at his posts, he made assumed actions, but the assumption never told another person besides him how to act.

I ask - how would you act, person A your fighting tells you one thing, person B tells you differently. If you go with Person A, your considered god modding against Person B, if you go with Person B you're considered god modding against Person A. Part of the issue with multiple person attacks, and why I'm also a big advocate for arena fights [or maybe just one on one fights, everyone here then has the same power of imagination].

Another item that will result of this. Many people in the town enjoyed the goblin hoard as a chance to show off their characters abilities. Others choose to ignore the goblins. Now, this case is being brought before the council [too large of parties involved to settle with the courts], of which Wukei, a poster who had ignored the uprising, is part of.

Would it be fair for her to continue to ignore it as part of the council?
[No involvement means the burden of decision is left to the remaining six members]
On that same note, would it be fair for her to be part of it?
[Council will make a decision based on 7 members, one of which ignored the whole uprising]

The question again I ask, how will the goblin uprising be tried/handled by the council in this town?

I'm intrigued at what answers will come up with this. [This is the type of stuff I try to deal with at the police station, for which my character has been called everything from a gallant hero to a corrupt villian.] :D))

In this, I have to agree with Supagoof, this case is forwarded to the town council

Gwen (judge)

Renrik
2006-07-27, 08:33 PM
((I beleive it would be generally unfair for those who ignored the riots to judge the rioters. They are not informed on the facts as well as they should be, and therefor are too much likely to slip into easy prejudices against the goblins as opposed to listening to the case of the goblins.

I also insist that the human instigators of the riot be put on trial for punishment along with the remaining goblin leaders. On this matter I speak withthe permission and interists of the goblins who I have sworn to represent.

I beleive that we should build a monument to those slain during the riots, both human and goblin.

I beleive those found guilty, should, among other things, be made to pay fines. These fines should go towards funding restorative efforts on the shattered population of the lower city.))

Flabbicus
2006-07-27, 08:37 PM
(( Since we have no official monetary system I fail to see what fines will do to punish the instigators, of which I may be one of. ))

Renrik
2006-07-27, 09:05 PM
((Good point, Rilik, but I don;t see how you are one of the instigators. To the best of my kowledge, all actions you took in he riot were after the riot started))

Flabbicus
2006-07-27, 09:08 PM
(( Just making a point that I acted with lethal force. ))

Renrik
2006-07-27, 09:46 PM
((Unless you are a member of the police department, I don;t think your use of lethal force to defend yourself was innapropriate. Police who used lethal force when nonlethal would have sufficed, however, are the ones whoshould be punished for failing to respect the lives of the citizens under their protection))

I have agreed to oversee the trial. The council will deem who is guilty and who is not.

Those of you who think that beacuse we wernt involved, we shouldnt judge, I dissagree. That will give us a more biast opinion as to the occourances. If we were involved, we would probably judge in the way that best suited the side that we were on.

If you please, Gwen, could you start the thread, take the seat of judge, but mearly make sure that the trial goes smoothly. The rest of the council and I will only dictate the verdict.

Thank you.

A group of soldiers approaches the courthouse. they wear the garb of northerners. Their leader, a battle-hardened veteran, demands to be given a copy of the town's laws, so that his men may become familiar with them for their stay in town.

It scribbles a note and drops it on the judges desk
Judge Gwen
We have in the holding cells a man who has confessed to the murder of five hundred goblins (approximately). As there is currently no accuser is it worth the time and expense of a trial or shall we just lock him up officially for the prescribed time?

Gufipolice vs. Faceninja
Terrorizing, Attempted Arson, and attacking an officer of the law.

Witnesses: Kyrian, Tink'R Bell

There may be more to this case, but since Kyrian left the force this is all the details we have. Faceninja has also served time in a cell, so that should account towards any punishment should the courts find it neccessary.

And with that, Godric heads back to the station.
