Cort Pü Inalt
|The Cort Pü Inalt|
When hearing arguments or rendering decisions, the Organic Law requires that the justices of the Cort Pü Inalt wear official judicial wigs. Precedent has been established such that draping a paper napkin over the judicial pate is sufficient to satisfy this Organic requirement.
An inferior court, the Magistracy, was instituted by the Ziu to supplement the Cort Pü Inalt's ability to manage their burden. The Clerk of Courts is an appointed position that receives cases and presents them to the Cort Pü Inalt.

The terms "Senior" and "Puisne" (earlier, "Associate") were only introuced later. Weston Erni was the first to bear the title of Senior Justice, and also the first Justice that was appointed to replace one of the three original members.
The only nomination (as far as sources go) to be rejected by the Ziu was that of former Seneschal Sir Samuhel Tecladeir in 2009, to the seat held by retiring Senior Justice Ian von Metairia. Eventually, Fritz von Buchholtz was confirmed a few months later.
Justices who have served as Senior Justice are marked in bold.

- The order of the new Justices taking office in the 2012 reshuffle, and who they replaced, was determined by 43RZ30, which appointed, in this precise order, Sir Tamorán dal Nava, Timoþi Asmourescu and Ián Tamorán to the first vacancies available. Having Justice von Buchholtz retired first, dal Nava succeeded him and was made Senior Justice; Justices Siervicül and Castiglha were removed by legislation in the same Clark later that month, so the lower numbered removal bill (Siervicül's) was determined to have vacated the next seat for Asmourescu, and the last vacated seat (Castiglha's) was therefore occupied by Tamoran.
- Immediately made Senior Justice
- Senior Justice after von Metairia (4) quit
- Senior Justice after Laurieir (2) quit
- Senior Justice after Velmeir quit
- Senior Justice after Muth quit
- Senior Justice after Von Metairia (1) quit
- Senior Justice after Erni quit
- After passage of 18RZ09 (1994)
