Notification of Charges:

Ronovi Tavisaen,

Due to the accusations of your actions against the integrity of a Brotherhood Vendetta, you have been summoned to the Chamber of Justice to stand trial before the Seat of Judgement. The violations of which you are being accused are as follows:

I) Cheating - You did willingly and knowingly attempt to unfairly improve your unit’s participation score by falsifying a submission to include a member who did not participate in that event during a Brotherhood Vendetta.

II) Abuse of Power - You did willingly and knowingly attempt to coerce a subordinate into falsifying a submission to include a member who did not participated in that event, and thus attempted to coerce a subordinate to cheat in a Brotherhood Vendetta.

III) Disreputable Behavior - Through the manipulation of the submission, you have brought credible disrepute unto yourself, your House, and the Brotherhood, as well as tainting the integrity of the Brotherhood Vendetta.

Despite the violations that you have been charged with, the Chamber of Justice is not without mercy. The Chamber offers you the opportunity to defend yourself and your actions, if it is your desire to do so.

Your email account has been deleted, thus your notification is posted here per the Covenant requiring you to be notified. You may not use other Brotherhood member's to enter your plea for you. You may contact myself or the Left Hand of Justice via an alternate email account to enter your plea.

You have four days to respond to this with a plea of Guilty or not-Guilty. If you do not reply, a plea of not-Guilty will be entered on your behalf and the Chamber will proceed to a Trial-by-Justicar, though you will forfeit the opportunity to submit evidence in your defense.

Your rights, as laid out by the Dark Covenant, Section 8.02, are available to you here: http://wiki.darkjedibrotherhood.com/view/Dark_Covenant#Section_8.02:_Rights_of_the_Accused

Signed and Sealed in Justice,

Warlord Taigikori Aybara Justicar of the Chamber of Justice and High Protector of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood

Justicar's Opinion

Chamber of Justice Communique #41b - Justicar's Opinion

This was the first time in Brotherhood history that an entire Summit was involved in a Vendetta cheating case, and required the entire Chamber of Justice to act swiftly in harmony with the Grand Master to ensure that our member base was both protected, and secured. The act of ordering a subordinate to cheat, is about the most serious offense one can do as leader of this club, and cannot go without the intervention of the Justicar, backed by the full support of the executive branch of this organization. Ronovi, Arden, and Solus all decided upon the importance of house participation points, over the responsibility of being a leader. Though Ronovi and Arden recognized their fault and attempted to make amends for their wrong doing, the Covenant requires an atmosphere of non oppression for our members, especially from the leaders they are serving. Solus Gar, who attempted to evade the decision of the Chamber by deleting his email account, was held just as responsible for his actions, as he was in a personal position within the House to command influence and respect from Ronovi. All three cases serve as a reminder, that we are not a perfect Unit, and we are not so far removed from leaders who would try to take advantage of those under them. We are here to serve the membership, to provide an enjoyable and free form of Star Wars entertainment, not to take those rights from them.

Signed and sealed in Justice,
Taigikori Aybara Justicar and High Protector of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood

Points of Interest

  • As noted in the Justicar’s Opinion, this case along with #39 and #40 was the first time an entire summit was tried by the Chamber simultaneously. As such, all news postings and the eventual judgement was made in the same Justicar’s Report. These cases had a severe impact on the internal and external stability of then House Plagueis and required the Dark Council to step in and assist in locating new top-level leadership.
  • In keeping with Chamber precedent, the member's sentence of probation was tolled (delayed) during the time when the member was rogue. Probation was restarted upon the return of the member to active status.
