To be seen is to be caught.
To fly is human, to hover, divine.
One of the scariest phrases ever: "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

The Magistrate’s Court T.M. Asmourescu (pro se) versus The Chancery
Background of the Case
In July 2013, Admiral T.M. Asmourescu publicly stated intention to renounce his citizenship on the message board known as “Wittenberg.” Admiral Asmourescu then terminated his account voluntarily intending not to return to Wittenberg or any other organized Talossan activity. On or about, November 22 2013, Admiral Asmourescu approached Talossa to again become an active citizen by completing the “Become a Citizen” form on the Kingdom of Talossa website. In his statement, Admiral Asmourescu advised that, upon closer inspection, it appeared that neither the Secretary of State, nor any of his authorized deputies, issued a Writ of Termination of Citizenship following the public renunciation.
The government has stated this has left Admiral Asmourescu in a state of “legal limbo” and has attempted to resolve the ambiguity of the citizenship via Prime Dictate which has not received royal assent to date. Application of Law Organic Law Article XVIII Section 9 states: Talossans may voluntarily renounce their own citizenship. This may be done by publicly issuing a written Declaration of Renunciation. It shall take immediate effect upon its acknowledgment by the Secretary of State through issuance of a Writ of Termination of Citizenship, which shall be published under the seal of the chancery. We hold that as no writ of termination of citizenship was issued, Admiral Asmourescu never ceased to be a citizen of Talossa.
Request for Relief We humbly beseech the court to affirm Admiral Asmourescu’s citizenship and deem the original renunciation null and void on the basis of the Chancery’s failure to act in a timely manner and in consideration of his desire to return to Talossa. In granting such affirmation, we further request that the Chancery be so ordered to return Admiral Asmourescu’s name to the list of active citizens and restore his suffrage.
Alternatively, we request that the court rule that the original renunciation is valid despite the inaction of the Chancery and issue the Writ of Termination of Citizenship, thus allowing Admiral Asmourescu to reapply for citizenship through the normal immigration process.

Should it please the Cort:
IN that the Attorney General has communicated to one of the Judges that since Adm. T.M. Asmourescu was removed from the roles effective the date of his renunciation that all court cases etc "cease to operate".
I would like to petition the Cort for Injunctive Relief, and ask the Cort to assign an impartial Magistrate or Judge to consider the merits of the request by the AG.
I do this as my standing as a Attorney for the Cort, as a Senator representing Provinçù Maritiimi-Maxhestic , and as a concerned Citizen.

I have tried to email the Clerk, but received a delivery failed message.
Here is my email:
Background of the Case
Voting in the Cosa election is now secret by default. Citizens who vote in the election need to explicitly express their desire for their vote to be public in order to have the Chancery reveal publicly their vote.
The question brought to the Cort today is, can the Chancery reveal, at regular interval or even in real time the voter turnout? Can the Chancery prepare an automatic webpage which lists the identify of the citizens who have probably voted without revealing their actual vote.
Producing such a list would help locate citizens which have not voted yet in case their ballot was not successfully received as well as locate citizens which may have publicly voted on Wittenberg but which were not yet acknowledged by the Chancery.
It would also enable citizens to quickly locate if their vote was entered and even see if someone already voted for them in case of a fraud.
Many citizens have posted their opinion supporting the public disclosure of the turn-out but the Acting Secretary of State seeks a rapid decision from the Cort as the election only has a further 12 days to go.

V: If one takes issue with the current Covenants - I would support a rewrite to clean them up.
Feb 10, 2019 17:36:13 GMT -6
V: But that said, this argument that if we adopted the new Org Law and the Covenants, it would be inorganic is lost when we consider that by adopting the new org law, we relinquish the shackles of the old Org Law.
Feb 10, 2019 17:37:05 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: You have some good points. To be sure, the longevity and tradition of the OrgLaw make it (and us) stand out from other, similar, places. But your argument here in this thread basically boils down to "it's too cumbersome." And that's not true.
Feb 10, 2019 20:02:08 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: The new proposal is just as cumbersome and complicated, except where it has omissions that will need to be remedied. Even leaving aside the fatal flaws, it's not an improvement in this way, except for the lack of "holes."
Feb 10, 2019 20:03:20 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: Ultimately, the same amount of effort spent amending the current OrgLaw would have had equal or superior effect to coming up with a new system of government, plus it wouldn't have trashed the old one to which we swore an oath.
Feb 10, 2019 20:04:18 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: And finally, the entire process is being performed by the legislative process as normal, which means it is part of that process. Elevating new supreme documents so easily should not be possible, since that is dangerous and ill-conceived.
Feb 10, 2019 20:05:35 GMT -6
V: Not really - in effect- we're amending the prior org law by repealing all aspects of it and passing adopting new sections. So yoi can keep your longevity.
Feb 10, 2019 20:28:07 GMT -6
Ian Plätschisch: Yeah, the whole reason we aren't calling it "The 2019 Organic Law" is because you convinced us not to
Feb 10, 2019 20:46:13 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: So... if you agree with me, why the argument? Yes, we're doing it entirely within the frame of the current Organic Law, passing a massive amendment to install a new constitution in its shell. Good, I guess, although this is a weird conversation.
Feb 10, 2019 22:02:41 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: I am comforted by the fact that this probably won't pass referendum, but why run in circles like the above? Let's just be straightforward.
