On the Necessity of Compiling of Motivated Judicial Acts in the Appellate and Cassation Instance
PROBLEMS OF CIVIL PROCEDURE

The Resolution of the Plenum of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of 03.10.2017
No. 30 proposes to make amendments to the Code of Civil Procedure of the Russian
Federation, the Code of Arbitration Procedure of the Russian Federation and the Code of
Administrative Procedure of the Russian Federation concerning of compiling of motivated
judicial acts in the appellate and cassation instance. The article analyzes problems
associated with such changes. Rejection of compiling of motivated judicial acts in the
appellate instance contradicts the essence of the appeal as a retrial; formalizes its work due
to the frequent use of the authority to leave the judicial act unchanged and the rejection to
hold court hearings of the appellate court for cases considered in the simplified procedure.
Unmotivated judicial acts of the cassation instance make the system of unmotivated judicial
acts complete, all-instant. Changes also contradict the goals of creating separate appellate
and cassation courts of general jurisdiction.
Keywords: appeal; cassation; unmotivated judicial acts; judicial system; judicial decision.
