The Judicial Branch is the portion of the Student Government Association that decides cases arising from the student community. This branch is supervised by the Attorney General and separates into two different sub parts of the Judicial Branch: The Supreme Court and the Traffic Court. The Supreme Court moderates the balance between the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch and hears cases involving SGA election disputes, Traffic Court Appeals, SGA Constitutional questions, and student conflict disputes. The Traffic Court provides the opportunity for students to appeal their parking ticket citations in a moderated and organized manner. The Traffic Court is made up of public defenders, prosecutors, a judicial assistant and five justices that issue verdicts on student appeals.
Students should contact the Chief Justices of the Supreme Court and Traffic Court for questions pertaining to case matters or on how to properly file an appeal.
