The Implementation of Superior Judicial Acts in Civil Procedure

T.V. Solovyova, 
Candidate of Legal Sciences, Associate Professor of the Department 
of Civil Procedure of the Saratov State Law Academy


The article analyzes the effect of acts of the Superior Courts. Author includes in the term of «Superior judiciary» the Supreme Court, the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation and the European Court of Human Rights. Despite the different scope and nature of the regulatory authority of listed judiciaries, they are the highest bodies in the corresponding systems. The main feature of the implementation of the acts of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation, the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights is that in this process the courts of general jurisdiction, as well as the executive and legislative authorities participate and interact with each other. Today the problem of improper implementation of judgments escalates. Today’s system does not implemented not only the decisions of the courts of general jurisdiction, but also the acts of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation and the European Court of Human Rights. The issue of implementing the acts of the highest judicial bodies in civil proceedings is currently undeveloped because no comprehensive study of the nature and order of enforcing these decisions. The main problem with the implementation of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation acts is supported by the absence of a specific order to bring them into action. 

Keywords: court practice; the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation; the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation; the European Court of Human Rights.
