Members of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood -
The Chamber of Justice has convened in seven matters, having brought charges against members and completed the process of adjudication for each case. The Chamber has issued detailed verdicts and Justicar Opinions for each case which can be found in the PDF files linked below. The primary opinion, which was incorporated by reference into other opinions due to overlapping issues, is the DB v. Delak Krennel opinion. I direct you attention to that opinion first. Please note that the written opinion is generally found on the second page of the following documents, after announcement of the verdict.
Case # 45 - DB v. Chizz - Opinion PDF
- Count 1 - Cheating - GUILTY through Trial by Justicar. No plea entered.
- Punishment - Two-grade Demotion, LoR, Strict Probation
On January 18 and 19, 2015, the Defendant and Dark Jedi Knight Darkblade submitted identical submissions to the Round 1 Puzzle Event in the Eleventh Great Jedi War. The Seneschal coded the event so that no two puzzles for members were identical. As a result, no two members could have the same answer, and the Seneschal flagged your submissions.
As punishment for these submissions, and violating the spirit of competition, the Defendant was initially punished through a disqualification from the event. Thereafter, the Chamber of Justice conducted an investigation and, upon due consideration, decided to issue charges.
As to the general principles of Covenant interpretation and Chamber policies, the Opinion set forth in DB vs. Delak Krennel, Case #0042, is incorporated by reference. In addition to those opinions, the Chamber notes that this is a case in which the Defendant failed to enter a plea. That resulted in a Trial by Justicar in which the Defendant was not able to enter evidence on his own behalf. As a result, I immediately reviewed the evidence, and in this case the evidence is clear and impossible to controvert.
While the punishment is justified and necessary, the Chamber asks that the Defendant’s peers join me in forgiving him for the violations of the Covenant and seek to bring him further into the fold of active membership.
Signed and sealed in Justice,
Jac Ae-Sequiera Cotelin
Justicar and High Protector of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood
