In the article questions of implementation by the Court of Appeal of the powers are analyzed. Legislative approach concerning absence at the court of test instance of competence to reverse the judgement and to motion a case for a new trial at establishment of essential (fundamental) violations of norms of procedural law reasonably it is criticized in scientific literature. However there are no corresponding legislative novels, and the changes brought in 2010 in the civil procedural legislation establishing a uniform appeal order of the appeal haven’t resolved the matter. Assignment on the Court of Appeal of a duty of second trial by rules of proceedings of the court of the first instance at establishment of the unconditional bases for reversal of the judgement distorts an essence of appeal proceedings and deprives of subjects of civil procedure of a possibility of implementation of the right for judicial protection in the court of the first instance. Now in scientific literature most of authors incline to opinion on need of investment of the Court of Appeal with competence of motion of cases for a new trial that would provide efficiency of implementation of judicial protection of civil rights. The specified legal lack could be met by reforming of the domestic procedural legislation.
Keywords: Court of Appeal; judicial powers; motion of a case for a new trial; civil procedure.
