CONSTITUTIONAL STATUS AND FUNCTION OF THE COURT OF JURISDICTIONAL DISPUTES

As specified in Chapter three of the Turkish Constitution regulating the “Judiciary”; 

High Courts are:

Constitutional Court,

Court of Cassation

Council of State

Court of Jurisdictional Disputes   


 

The Court of Jurisdictional Disputes, one of the High Courts exercising the judicial power within the limits of their duty and jurisdiction described in the Constitution, is an independent high court empowered by virtue of Article 158 of the Constitution (1961 Constitution, Art. 142) to deliver final judgments in disputes between civil, criminal and administrative courts concerning their jurisdiction and decisions.

The Court of Jurisdictional Disputes enables the individuals to exercise their right to legal remedies by settling the disputes relating to the jurisdiction, which arise from the principle of judicial separation, and eliminates the legal obstacles that preclude the exercise of the right by way of resolving the disputes arising from decisions. The Court of Jurisdictional Disputes is a special high court authorized to quash the decisions delivered by the other high courts, namely the Court of Cassation and Council of State, and to establish a new judgment. In this regard, the Court of Jurisdictional Disputes is the single judicial body empowered to quash a final judgment.
