Evidence ex officio

In its judgment of 11 December 2014, the Supreme Court stated that in case the party (even the one represented by the plenipotentiary) does not submit the evidence of the expert opinion, in the situation that it is necessary to resolve the case, the court shall admit such evidence ex officio(file no. III CZP 88/14).

In the Supreme Court’s opinion, the rule of adversarial proceedings cannot be interpreted too formally, in particular it shall not retreat before the need to issue a fair judgment.
