Supreme Court: Fax Receipt, no Refund

CK - Washington.   Recently, we listed the German federal supreme courts. Next to the Constitutional Supreme Court, Bundesverfassungsgericht, the court receiving the most attention is the Federal Supreme Court with its civil and criminal divisions, Bundesgerichtshof, abbreviated BGH.

The BGH court released an English-language PDF brochure in 2008 which outlines its organization and jurisdiction. One of the issues currently before the court is the split among appellate courts on the presumption of receipt of telefaxes, an issue Christine Schaller recently discussed in English.

The court provides press information and notes dryly that despite rumors to the contrary it has not decided that overpayments of public broadcasting fees must be refunded.
