abolishing the Court of Cattel, and laying down the order of procedure before the Land Court (Cour d’Héritage)

CONSIDERING that few cases come before the Court of Cattel, and that often several Terms pass without a single case being dealt with therein; considering also that the mode of bringing cases before the Land Court (Cour d’Héritage) gives rise to great inconvenience; the States have resolved, subject to the sanction of Her Most Excellent Majesty in Council, to enact the following Law

Article    1

La Court of Cattel is hereby abolished with effect from 1st January1863.

Cases which were heard by this Court shall henceforth be heard by the Land Court (Cour d’Héritage).

Article      2

In the future, in all cases, the Inferior Number shall be composed only of the Bailiff and 2 Jurats.
