In the second part of the article, the authors continue to analyze the changes in the Civil
Procedure Code of the Russian Federation and the Arbitration Procedure Code of the Russian
Federation proposed by the bill, which was introduced by the Supreme Court of the
Russian Federation in the beginning of October 2017 to the State Duma for consideration.
In particular, the risks and consequences of the possible cancellation of the motivating part
of judicial acts as an obligatory component thereof, the impact of such an initiative on justice
in general, on the rights and legitimate interests of the participants in the process, and
on the level of professionalism of the judiciary are assessed. In addition, taking into account
the existing prerequisites and approaches, the authors analyze changes regarding jurisdiction,
rules of appearance in court and court expenses. According to the authors, this legislative
initiative is incorrect, and already criticized by many representatives of the legal community.
The authors consider the issue in its more procedural and applied aspects. The idea
looks as a very simple way to solve the eternal problem of overburdening of judges, but in
fact this plan is extremely dangerous and hides many problems and questions. The authors
warn of the disastrous consequences for justice, the rights and interests of citizens.

Keywords: civil procedural legislation; arbitration procedural legislation; bill on reforming
of legal proceedings; reasoning part of the judicial act; jurisdiction; court expenses.
