Resolution 130: The Timely Nomination Bill
Proposed by cal76 with nominations from: Ptld, AyyLion, godzilltrain, jphgolf4321, CyAmethyst
This is a constitutional amendment.
This applies separately for each Associate Justice position.
Should an Associate Justice position become vacant for whatever reason, the Chief Justice shall have a 14 day countdown, starting from the moment the vacancy is created, to pick a nominee to fill such vacancy. When a nominee has been chosen, that countdown will be stopped. If the nomination fails to pass the General Assembly, then the Chief Justice will get 5 days to pick a replacement nominee. Every time a nominee fails a General Assembly vote from that point on during the vacancy in question, then the Chief Justice will always get an extra 5 days to pick a replacement. The 5 days is only for an ongoing vacancy; any new vacancy will get 14 days to start.
If the Chief Justice has failed to nominate an Associate Justice by the time the countdown is up, then the right to pick an Associate Justice for that vacancy will be stripped from the Chief Justice. Instead the power to nominate will be handed to the President, who will need at least one extra endorsement from any other officer (Can even be the Chief Justice), before putting a nominee up to the General Assembly. If that nomination fails then the President must choose again.
General Assembly Voting: Closes 22:52 GMT on August 23rd
Resolution 131: Nomination of ryanfr for Associate Justice
Submitted by Chief Justice mjpwwf
WHEREAS this Chief Justice has not had the most successful time choosing Associate Justices, and so apologizes to the United Cities for the delay in said process;
WHEREAS the people of the United Cities, including yours truly, demand qualified candidates for such lofty and honorable positions as those in the judicial branch of the Court;
WHEREAS ryanfr is experienced within the United Cities, having served on various committees including the Electoral Commission, and in so doing has sufficient knowledge of its laws;
and WHEREAS ryanfr has not served as an elected official of the United Cities in the past;
I THEREFORE NOMINATE ryanfr to serve as Associate Justice of the United Cities Court.
Signed, mjpwwf 8/22/2017
General Assembly Voting: Closes 23:16 GMT on August 23rd
While I have nothing personaly against Ryan I do feel that an Associate Justice should have more prior experience than serving on a committee that just sets up an Google Forums template for elections. I feel that if Ryan were around the UC a bit longer. Possibly persuing employment by the Department of Law I feel he would be an ideal candidate.
Resolution 132: Extension of the Timely Nominations Bill
Proposed by AyyLion with endorsements from cal76, dragonbloon419, and Ptld.
Upon the passage of this resolution, the current Chief Justice mjpwwf will have 1 week to nominate his first nominees for the Associate Justice positions. If one fails, the process will continue as specified in Resolution 130, with a 5 day period to name a new nominee after each failure. If he fails to name a nomination for either Associate Justice position during the 1 week period, or when the 5 days post-failure of a nominee have expired, the power to nominate will be handed to the President as specified in Resolution 130. If Resolution 130 fails, and this bill passes, all text would immediately be repealed due to referencing a resolution that was not passed.
