Extraordinary cases


 „In exceptionally justified cases NJC may render the extraordinary decision of those cases
that affect a wide range of the society or are extremely important from the aspect
of common interests.”


The new organisation act of 2011 provided the possibility to the President of NJO to transfer cases from one court to another, however accepting the proposal of the Venice Commission the law was modified and this right ceased to exist as of 1 August 2013. Resulting from this the tasks of NJC decreased essentially regarding the division of cases, assessing workload and collecting statistical data. After 1 August 2013 only the possibility of extraordinary cases remained. This cannot be exercised in individual cases since the related request is decided by the president of the court. Deciding on an extraordinary case means that the court has a continuous obligation to act, i.e. regardless of the procedural timelines a trial should be set within a deadline as short as possible in order to have a final decision. [Point a) of Paragraph (2a) of Article 103. of Act CLXI of 2011]
