The High Court has determined that your proposed constitution is consistent with Union law. However, we have located a factual error:

Quote
Constitution of the Province of Prudentia

Preamble:
The Province of Prudentia shall be a democracy within the Union of Force, whose aims are to promote freedom, liberty, community, and peace.

As this is your proposed constitution for statehood, the term "Province" should be replaced with "State"

I have neglected to record the fact that leadership of this club has been transferred to New Legland.

The High Court hereby rules that that §5.2.1.A. of the Heart Constitution shall be rendered null and void due to its contradiction with House Bill 61: The Provisional Voting Rights Act.

This document is consistent with Union law, although it contains numerous typos in desperate need of being fixed.

Renecat
[Mon Feb 14 19:29:36 2022] @Justices you need to decide on a new Justice to fill Battadia's place
then inform the Speaker
who will then start a citizens' vote

DJ Tigward
[19:48:04] Oh right
[19:48:16] I propose Bertilistan

Renecat
[19:48:50] they're MoIA
[19:48:55] and a Rep

DJ Tigward
[19:49:17] The amendment hasn't passed yet
[19:51:51] Or actually Glaceon might be good
[19:51:55] They're active and a viable candidate
[19:52:05] They seem like they might enjoy the job
[19:52:10] @Renecat What's your opinion

Renecat
[19:52:27] the important thing is whether or not they have legal knowledge
[19:52:42] I was thinking of recommending Azy, since I know he has some
but you'll have to ask him if he's willing

DJ Tigward
[19:52:49, edited 19:53:00] I doubt that he'll want to do it again
[19:52:55] I can always train Glaceon

Renecat
[19:53:04] ~~when did he do it before~~

DJ Tigward
[19:53:14] I am almost 100% sure that Azy has been a Justice before

Renecat
[19:53:19] uhhhhhh
[19:53:34] alright alright, yes
[19:53:37] it was very brief

DJ Tigward
[19:53:46] I knew it
[Tue Feb 15 20:18:54 2022] @Renecat Well this answers both questions
[unknown.png](https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/366713815112351754/943239973434445885/unknown.png)
[20:19:07] Also how did I only just now remember that Azy's pfp is Jerma985

Renecat
[Thu Feb 17 01:52:31 2022] I see
[01:52:48] Well, it's up to the Court to make a nomination
[01:52:52] you both need to agree on the nominee
[01:53:27] for reference
>  6. Should a vacancy arise in the Court or should a proposed nominee be rejected by the citizens, the Justices shall collectively decide upon and nominate a replacement within one week. The Chief Justice shall make a public announcement regarding this nomination, and it shall be brought by the Speaker to the citizens for a vote.

Caribou Island [UPP-Force]
[01:53:37] I have no ideas, really.  Whomever Tig thinks is best will probably do just fine.

Renecat
[01:54:53] also @DJ Tigward when

DJ Tigward
[02:57:28] Fuck
[02:57:32] Oh right
[02:57:35] We changed that
[02:57:36] I forgot

Renecat
[02:57:40] yeah,

DJ Tigward
[02:58:31] So do you agree to nominating Glaceon as Battadia's replacement
[02:58:43] I just need a yes or no for the sake of records

Caribou Island [UPP-Force]
[02:58:47] I don't know them, but if you think they're fine, I say yes

DJ Tigward
[02:58:50] Epic

Renecat
[02:58:55] it's Moon

Caribou Island [UPP-Force]
[02:59:08] Ah!  Everyone has so many names ;-;

DJ Tigward
[Fri Feb 18 03:10:30 2022] New EO numbering conventions when

Renecat
[03:12:51] there are dozens upon dozens of Executive Orders to number, and difficult criteria by which they must be numbered; on the other hand, there are a few FAQs that must be written, and the Constitution clearly spells out what is to be contained within them

DJ Tigward
[15:24:21] I was just asking
[15:24:41] As for the FAQs, they will be started when my workload decreases in ~ 1 week

Renecat
[Sat Feb 26 16:22:35 2022] @Justices  you need to nominate someone else

DJ Tigward
[16:25:28] Yeah
[16:25:30] But who
[16:25:47] Would Lash be willing to do it

Renecat
[16:27:28] He is
Minister
Of
Foreign
Affairs

DJ Tigward
[16:27:36] It’s not illegal

Renecat
[16:27:59] Oh,
[16:28:04] But still
[16:28:07] Like

DJ Tigward
[16:28:15] Yeah,

Caribou Island [UPP-Force]
[16:31:00] Nominate Rene
[16:31:56, edited 16:32:11] We need more catboy representation on the Court and he's already here anyway AND we're kind of running out of viable nominees

Renecat
[20:54:06] He is in the House

DJ Tigward
[21:51:11] I asked him, he’s considering it
[21:52:01] He’s aware that he would have to resign
[Sun Feb 27 17:06:47 2022] He said yes
[17:07:05] @Caribou Island [UPP-Force] Do you agree to nominating Lashnakia

Renecat
[Mon Feb 28 21:47:00 2022] @Caribou Island [UPP-Force]

Caribou Island [UPP-Force]
[21:47:14] Sure!
