The majority of the Court found that the referendum had indeed been placed incorrectly on the ballot and declared it therefore null and void. Newly appointed Justice ["KrisFricke" Kris Fricke] was the sole dissenter, claiming that yes there was clearly a mistake in the process through which the referendum ended up on the ballot, but the Court did not have jurisdiction over ["ASUCD Elections" elections] and should have handed the case back to the ["Elections Committee"] once it had examined and interpreted the contested codes.

Newly appointed Justice ["KrisFricke" Kris Fricke] was the sole dissenter, claiming that yes there was clearly a mistake in the process through which the referendum ended up on the ballot, but the Court did not have jurisdiction over ["ASUCD Elections" elections] and should have handed the case back to the ["Elections Committee"] once it had examined and interpreted the contested codes.

His replacement, chosen from among the current justices, is sophomore ["Users/TimCoady" Tim Coady]. ["KrisFricke" Fricke] reached the end of his term at approximately 6PM January 25, 2007 -- shortly after he finished writing his last writ of certiorari.<br> - <br> - = History =<br> - == The Prehistoric Court ==<br> - The pre-history of the Court is shrouded in myths and legends as record keeping in ["ASUCD"] seems to be shockingly bad. In fact, though some recent Opinions have been submitted to ["SGAO"] multiple times as word documents, and they even printed them out and posted them, they still profess not to have them on record anymore.<br> - <br> - Legend has it, that the ["ASUCD"] Court was created in its recognizable form in 1994 as the Supreme Court, with an Inferior Court as well, which was never used. In the first seven years there were allegedly eight cases, five of which were in 1995 regarding ["ASUCD Elections" elections] issues. (source: Background on Constitutional Amendment 1 of 2001)<br> - <br> - In 2001 the ["ASUCD"] Supreme Court disqualified the ["Tiqula Bledsoe" Bledsoe]/Beaman executive ticket of the ["LEAD"] party for "massive cheating worse than Ukraine in 2004" (they were very prescient back then). ["Tiqula Bledsoe" Bledsoe], self proclaimed "["Black Caesar" Black Caesar of ASUCD]", then threatened to sue ["ASUCD"], the Court, the ["UCD Administration" Administration], and anyone else remotely involved back into the stone age. Under threat of this impending legal holocaust, the Court reversed its ruling and allowed "the Reverend" ["Tiqula Bledsoe"] to take office. Like the Romans razing Carthage to the ground and salting its former soil, ["Tiqula Bledsoe" Bledsoe] Maximus wanted to triumphantly squash his nemesis, the judiciary, and had its name changed legally to the ["ASUCD"] Court, and extralegally to Student Court, with Chairpersons and Members (see Identity Crisis, below). Also, and very significantly, all matters relating to ["ASUCD Elections" elections] were removed from the Court's jurisdiction. Having succeeded in this he then treated himself to the spoils of ["ASUCD"], using government funds to pay for limos and parking tickets (not an exaggeration).<br> - <br> - There followed a year during which the Court was so crushed that it did not even meet. Cases were filed (by ["Lamar Heystek"], and ["KrisFricke" Kris Fricke] among others), but the plaintiffs in many cases never heard back from the Court once the complaint was filed. When the Court resumed activity with the ["Move to D1" D1] Case, it was designated Case # 19; obviously this doesn't add up to the eight cases previously mentioned, unless ten were filed during the year of inactivity. The truth to this matter is unclear.<br> - <br> - In the winter of 2002, the Court had a major case regarding the ["move to D1"]. It hinged upon a misprint in the Codes that led to confusion as to whether or not the referendum to place the ["Move to D1"] question on the ballot. The majority of the Court found that the referendum had indeed been placed incorrectly on the ballot and declared it therefore null and void. Newly appointed Justice ["KrisFricke" Kris Fricke] was the sole dissenter, claiming that yes there was clearly a mistake in the process through which the referendum ended up on the ballot, but the Court did not have jurisdiction over ["ASUCD Elections" elections] and should have handed the case back to the ["Elections Committee"] once it had examined and interpreted the contested codes. In response to this declaration, the ["ASUCD"] Executive Office stated "we believe [the Court] is only advisory" (obviously they had skipped over the part in the ["ASUCD Constitution" Constitution] which mentions ''binding opinions''). The Court subsequently met with the ["UC Davis"] legal council, who informed them that Justice ["KrisFricke" Kris Fricke] was in fact correct and they were fairly far from the recognized path of legal norms. Within a month the previous Chief Justice resigned, and Justice ["KrisFricke" Fricke] was confirmed as the new Chief Justice just in time to swear in a new executive office.<br> - <br> - Under the ["KrisFricke" Fricke] Administration, the Court considered six cases the following year.<br> - <br> - == The Identity Crisis ==<br> - In 2001 a ["ASUCD Constitution" Constitutional] Amendment was passed changing the name of the principal judicial organ of ["ASUCD"] from "["ASUCD"] Supreme Court" to "["ASUCD"] Court."

In the Winter of 2005 a ["ASUCD Constitution" Constitutional] Amendment was passed which intentionally referred to the Court as the ["ASUCD"] Court. Thus that name has both been determined to be the accurate one through analysis of historical legislation, but has been reaffirmed by a ["ASUCD Constitution" Constitutional] amendment (which takes precedence over any previous conflicting references or references in subordinate bodies). As of this writing, references to "Student Court" have been removed from all ["ASUCD"] bylaws, but the term remains in verbal use by more antiquated individuals.<br> - <br> - == Questionable Importance ==<br> - During the 2004/2005 year no cases were filed. Some senators took this to mean that ["ASUCD"] had become a utopian society and no longer needed the ["ASUCD"] Supreme Court. During the Candidates Forum in Fall 2005 candidate ["Michael Aguilera" Kongo Aguilera] said he saw no role in ["ASUCD"] for the Court. Shortly following that election four cases were filed. The candidates will not be seated until the case regarding the election is resolved. Without the role of the Court in the association, it is hard to imagine a resolution to this situation which would not involve the ["shadiness factor" dubious] overriding of bylaws, a cry of injustice and public opinion fiasco, or both.<br> - <br> - ["Michael Aguilera" Kongo Aguilera] was subsequently appointed to the Court.<br> - <br> - = Cases =<br> - Many cases appear to be lost to the sands of time, as ["SGAO"] tends to misplace them and Chief Justice ["KrisFricke" Fricke's] computer crashed at the beginning of Fall 2003 and lost all court documents on it previous to that.<br> - The availability of opinions is important however.
