[OFFICIAL POST] The Court System of Asgardia ¶

“Economic and social progress cannot sustainably be achieved without respect for the rule of law, democratic consolidation, and effective human rights protection ; each of which requires a well-functioning judiciary that can interpret and enforce the laws equitably and efficiently”. - Court Performance around the World : a Comparative Perspective, by Maria Dakolias (Yale Human Rights and Development Journal Volume 2 article 2)
In that perspective, I would like to highlight three important points :
1) The judicial branch of Asgardia should be part of law enforcement. What is your opinion in that regard ?
2) Should we have an Appellate Court, which decision would be binding Trial Courts, along with a Supreme Court maybe, and how could we organise that system ? Appelate Courts : "If either party disagrees with the decision in the trial court, they can appeal, asking a higher court to review the decision. The outcome of appeals cases have the potential to affect large numbers of people, because these decisions are binding on district courts within the circuit. No new evidence is presented, the judge(s) simply review the materials from the original trial and determine whether the lower court made the correct legal decision".
3) Part of the Community suggested we make use of the progress of artificial intelligence to automate certain cases resolutions. What would you suggest in that regard ?
