German Court Day

The second German court day in Hamm has been completed with very positive results on the 14.6.2008 for court-appointed experts. Keep controversial in recent years in the higher jurisdiction question of component openings of the court day in favour of amendments in the code of civil procedure and the civil code. For the procedural law, the legislature recommended to to record the provision in the code of civil procedure, that the expert is not obliged to undertake interventions in terms of itself or by third parties. The reviewer, however, makes voluntary substance intervention itself or by contractors appointed by him, he should not sharper liable for such acts, to which he is not required and that he then alone makes on behalf of the parties, as in the case of an incorrect opinion.

Another important advice point was the question of whether expert groups or expert organizations to gain greater influence on the creation of judicial construction advice such as TuV or DEKRA. The German “Court day rejects this clearly rules in the code of civil procedure, the it outside the control of the Court and the parties in such community or company opinion” would allow the experts or organizations, independently with each other to divide the questions of evidence. It should remain so it that it is the Court alone to decide which experts awarded the contract in person and the respective proof question is assigned to.
