The Legislative Yuan has passed amendments to the Court Organic Act, establishing grand chambers in the Supreme Court to alleviate the problem that courts at different levels hand down contradictory judgements. The amendments stipulate that the Supreme Court is to assemble a civil grand chamber and a criminal grand chamber of 11 judges each. Should the legal basis invoked by the presiding court contradicts that cited by a high court, or has not been, but so important that should be, settled by the Court, the presiding court should address the dispute by submitting a request for the corresponding grand chamber to state its opinions. The amendments also afford litigants the right to file a motion to request the presiding court submit the dispute to the corresponding grand chamber. That grand chamber must issue a ruling on the dispute. The grand chamber’s ruling is interlocutory, not the final judgment, and serves as the basis on which the presiding court must base its judgement.
