Things are once again afoot in the Russian judiciary, this time in a somewhat unanticipated direction.
Last week the Russian Constitutional Court (KSRF) reached a decision which effectively paves the way for the doctrine of binding precedent in trhe civil law regime. The decision relates specifically to the proceedings of the Supreme Arbitration Court (VAS)
While a little esoteric, this decision is fairly revolutionary for those of us that follow Russian jurisprudence.
