RE: LIABILITY OF THE STATE FOR MALADMINISTRATION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT OF THE SLOVAK REPUBLIC (K zodpovednosti statu za nespravny uradny postup Ustavneho sudu Slovenskej republiky)
The Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic, set up as an independent judicial body to protect constitutionality, may deal in cases requiring specific constitutional review with complaints raised by natural or legal persons as provided in Article 127 of the Slovak Constitution. Pursuant to §52(2) of Act No. 38/1993 Coll. on the Organisation of the Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic, Proceedings before the Court and the Status of its Judges as amended by Act 124/2002 Coll., the Constitutional Court may decide upon the complainant's motion on temporary injunction and suspend the execution of the challenged lawful decision, measure or other encroachment. This procedure should be without prejudice to the rights of third persons. If third persons incur damage - lost profit in particular - as a result of such decision by the Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic, the state is liable for maladministration pursuant to a separate regulation - Act No. 514/2003 Coll. on Liability for Damage Caused by Discharge of Public Authority and on the amendment to certain acts, as amended by Act No. 215/2007 Coll.
