The president of the Supreme Federal Court, Minister Luiz Fux, published a resolution this Thursday night (10/15) that defines complementary rules on the system of distribution of court cases.
From now on, a distribution certificate will be included in each process, which will contain the parameters used, in addition to the justification of the normative provision on which the server was based, the number of the process and the names of the ministers that may be excluded.
Information about the distribution should be made available in the “general information” tab on the court progress pages of the court’s website.
It is also foreseen that the distribution of cases will not be made after the end of the STF’s working hours, except in situations of “perishing of right”. The time for distribution will be predetermined by the court president.
Fux also created a working group to “improve security, transparency and randomness in the distribution of processes”, which will carry out analyzes on the topic. The group will operate for 30 days, extendable.
The changes come after Minister Gilmar Mendes pointed out earlier the possibility of fraud in distribution. In the judgment on the injunction suspension that determined that the drug dealer known as André do Rap should be arrested again, Gilmar recalled that Rosa Weber was the rapporteur of the operation that arrested the defendant. Thus, the expectation was that the minister would stay on trial to judge Habeas Corpus, which was randomly distributed to Marco Aurélio.
The minister said that, in the specific case, neither the Attorney General’s Office “is immune from criticism”, since it presented the challenge only on Saturday.
“It was only on Saturday, October 10, 2020, when the release order had already been fulfilled, that the parquet filed the injunction request under examination, on Saturday, at 19:46. This only arrived on Saturday! HC was given at Tuesday. It is a festival of errors, mistakes and omissions! “, said Gilmar.
