Abstract

In addition to its wide range of substantive jurisdiction at first instance, the Supreme Court was primarily an appeal court to review decisions of regional higher courts and French courts of Austrägal. The evaluation of some 40 000 cases recorded in the Bochum database shows the variable quantitative importance of the appeal in relation to the activity of the Court of Appeal at first instance in time and space. In addition to this function of appeal in the strict sense, the Court of First Instance, as the highest instance, was also competent to deal with further appeals — nullity, denial of justice and appeal and restitution; the quantitative finding on the scope of such actions is rather modest, even taking into account that these were remedies for extraordinary situations. Of the remedies available against decisions of the Riksdag’s Court of Appeal, only the appeal on a point of law was of some importance; On the other hand, Syndikatsklagen, appeals to the visitor or the Riksdag were extremely rare.
