[BEGIN LAW 14]
Law 14 (Court of Our Town, Court of OT) describes with a very broad aspect the rules, guidelines, and punishments of the Our Town Courts (fulfilled by Court Judge position), the responsibilities of said positions and related, and the structure of the Courts.

14:

Specific to Law 14:
The following sub laws of 14 cannot be changed by the Minister, Vice Minister, or any other government rank:
14Aa*, 14Ac*, 14Ca*.
(Any law listed here with an asterisk (*) means it includes that law and all of its sub-laws.)

14A: Warrants:
Warrants are temporary permits allowing an officer, government employee, judge, Vice/Minister, or any position with permission from the Vice/Minister, to have overriding permission of citizens. Warrants are usually used to be able to force-search the house, inventory, properties, and items of players in the server who have been suspected of a crime or have committed a crime before.

  • 14Aa: Warrants can only be issued by the following positions of the Ministry of Our Town:
    • Court Judge (1 every 3 days, max)
    • Mayor of Our Town (1 every 7 days, max)
    • Vice Minister of OT (1 every 14 days, max)
    • Minister of Our Town (1 every 8 days, max)

Any other positions are not allowed to submit warrants of any type, and such documents will be voided with no use.

    • 14AaA: Warrants made by the Minister/Vice Minister of Our Town must be signed by both positions, but this is exempt if the warrant is regarding one of the two. If the warrant is regarding either Minister, Vice Minister, or Mayor, it must be signed by a Court Judge.
  • 14Ab: Warrants are for use for a max use of anywhere between 1-3 times, and can be valid for anywhere between 0-7 days. Both variables are decided by the signee of the warrant. If no value is specified, it defaults to within that hour of it being signed as being used, and with a max use of 1 time.

  • 14Ac: Warrants do not need to be signed by the person in question when presented with them. If a warrant’s service (for example, a search) is refused by the player they may be placed under arrest for resisting warranted search.

    • 14AcA: A officer/player with permission of arresting does not need a warrant if reasonable suspicion of a committed crime is evident.

14B: Arrestation:

  • 14Ba: Arrestation (an act of arresting/being arrested) takes place with a course of manipulation of commands by the arrester; they, after seeing a suspect flee the scene or after they have made enough conclusion to make an arrest, will be able to use in-game commands like /tp, /effect, /kick, /op//deop, /gamemode, and be able to use the pause menu to alter permissions.

14C: Terms for government employees. These terms regard the powers, times (durations), powers/abilities, and more on the various positions in the Ministry of Our Town.

  • 14Ca: Term durations:

    • Minister of Our Town: Term lasts 1 Month. The election voting starts at the beginning of each term, but the Minister gets to decide when it really starts- They can choose anywhere between the beginning of their term, or 2 weeks before the end. Not following this can result in immediate removal from office (judge’s decision). You must give at least 3 days notice for the “GGG Realms Forum” Owner to manifest a voting system if it will not take place inside of the MC Server.
    • Vice Minister of Our Town: Term lasts 1 Month. The elected Vice Minister is the second place party running for Minister You cannot run for Vice Minister, but run for Minister and get the position of Vice Minister if you do not win 1st.

    • 14CaA: voting, dates, locations, etc.
      • 14CaAa: Voting locations will be established. These locations and methods may change based on the election, but one will always be available at the Ministry of Our Town.
        Voting is only allowed Once per player. Voting more than once will result in a fine of $20,000 - $200,000 (judge’s decision), and a temporary ban on voting. The length of this ban will be chosen by the Judge, and the number of infractions will be taken into account. (kept in the players’ public record)
      • 14CaAb: Voting will start (as will the campaigns, riled by the candidates) 3 weeks before election day. Whichever candidate has the most votes will become the position they are running for.
