Changes in the civil procedure

On September 8, 2016 came into force an amendment to the Code of Civil Procedure aimed at accelerating the proceedings. One such change is new Article. 52 § 3. According to this article the judge to whom the application is made for exemption will be able to conduct further proceedings and therefore take action in the case, except for the judgment or order closing the proceedings.

It means that by submitting a request for exclusion of a judge, the judge will not have to abstain from participating in the case, but only - if the request will be considered - the proceedings will be lifted in part with the participation of the judge in the case after the request for exemption.
