In this article, the authors analyze the provisions of the Institute of prejudice in civil
proceedings, concerning the issues of prejudice of judicial acts decided in criminal
proceedings, and also highlight some of the problems arising in their application in
judicial practice and possible solutions to such problems. The institution of prejudice in
civil proceedings has undergone significant changes, including in terms of the list of law
enforcement acts, which the legislator has given a pre-judicial value. At the same time, both
in the scientific world and in law enforcement practice, the question remains open as to
how to correctly assess the information contained in the decision to terminate a criminal
case on non-rehabilitating grounds, if such a decision was made not at the judicial stage
of criminal proceedings. This problem, in the opinion of authors is becoming increasingly
important in light of the reform of the procedural legislation to ensure reasonable terms of
consideration of civil disputes, as well as assist people are victims of crime with maximum
support from the state in obtaining evidence of harm as a result of this wrongful act.
Keywords: grounds for exemption from proof; prejudice; factual circumstances of the case
