Court of Arbitration ruling n°2012-2, April the 14th

THE PIRATE PARTIES INTERNATIONAL COURT OF ARBITRATION,

Given the Pirate Parties International Statutes,

Given the Pirate Parties International Wiki history,

Given the hearing of four applicants members,

Given the testimony of a Board member regarding applications reception dates,

Given the motivations of the original amendment SAP-11 of the General Assembly of Pirate Parties International 2011, in Friedrichshafen.

1) Considering article III, paragraph 3 of the Pirate Parties International Statutes, defines, since General Assembly of Pirate Parties International 2011, in Friedrichshafen, that the membership applications shall be sent 4 weeks in advance to the Board.

2) Considering the Wiki page on the Pirate Parties International Website used for membership application was not updated by the Board after the General Assembly of Pirate Parties International 2011, in Friedrichshafen to reflect the current state of the Statutes.

3) Considering that there is no motive to induce all applicants in error regarding the application deadline.

4) Considering that all applicants shall have read the current Statutes.

5) Considering that the current version of the Statutes is correctly published by the Board.

6) Considering that therefore the omission of the Board is not be enough to induce the applicants in error.

7) Considering that nine out of thirteen applications were sent after the 4 weeks deadline.

8) Considering that the smallest gap between the deadline and an application was superior to 4 days.

9) Considering that none of the heard late applicants raised a legal base to challenge the 4 weeks deadline.

10) Considering the motivation statement of the amendment proposal SAP-11 of the General Assembly of Pirate Parties International 2011, in Friedrichshafen, that introduced the 4 weeks deadline, which clearly states the need of a delay between applications and the General Assembly for members to have the time to judge them.

11) Considering that therefore the Court of Arbitration has no ground to declare the late applications admissible for General Assembly of Pirate Parties International in Prague on 14-15th of April 2012.

12) Considering that all concerned applications shall be considered admissible 4 weeks after they have been filed.

13) Considering that a General Assembly, either ordinary or extraordinary, has to be announced at least 5 weeks in advance.

14) Considering that therefore all concerned applications shall be considered admissible at the next General Assembly.
