Decision of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation of January 27, 2004 on the Case of Constitutionality of Individual Provisions of Item 2 of Part 1 of Article 27, Parts 1, 2 and 4 of Article 251, Parts 2 and 3 of Article 253 of the Code of Civil Procedures of the Russian Federation Pursuant to the Request of the Government of the Russian Federation

The applicant challenged the constitutionality of the mentioned provisions of the Code of Civil Procedures of the Russian Federation specifying the authority of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation to consider and solve the cases challenging the normative legal acts of the Government of the Russian Federation, as well as to take decisions recognising such acts as contradicting the federal law and invalidating them from the day of their adoption.
The Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation recognised as not contradicting the Constitution of the Russian Federation the interconnected provisions of Item 2 of Part 1 of Article 27, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 4 of Article 251, Part 2 and Part 3 of Article 253 of the Code of Civil Procedures of the Russian Federation inasmuch as they empower the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation with authority to consider and solve the cases invalidating the normative legal acts of the Government of the Russian Federation. The mentioned provisions do not imply the solving by the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of the cases challenging the normative legal acts of the Government of the Russian Federation adopted in execution of the authority vested in it directly by the federal law. The revealed constitutional and legal meaning of the mentioned provision is obligatory to all and excludes any other interpretation in the legal practice.
The normative regulation contained in Part 2 and Part 3 of Article 253 in relation to Item 2 of Part 1 of Article 27, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 4 of Article 251 of the Code of Civil Procedures of the Russian Federation stating that recognising of the normative legal act as contradicting the federal law from the day of adoption implies the loss of force of this normative legal act or part of it - inasmuch as it pertains to the checking of the normative legal acts that may be checked in the course of constitutional proceedings - has no legal power from the moment of adoption and may not be applied.
The Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation has abstained from recognising the provisions of Item 2 of Part 1 of Article 27, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 4 of Article 251, Parts 1, 2 and Part 3 of Article 253 of the Code of Civil Procedures of the Russian Federation as not complying with the Constitution of the Russian Federation in the form of the act. The Federal Assembly must adopt a federal constitutional law specifying the authority of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation in consideration of the cases challenging such normative legal acts of the Government of the Russian Federation other than those falling in the exclusive authority of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation.
The Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation emphasised that the Decision does not imply the obligation to revise the earlier adopted by the Supreme Court Decisions on the cases challenging the provisions of the normative acts of the Government of the Russian Federation, which does not exclude for the authorised subjects opportunities to apply to the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation with appropriate requests.
The Decision is entered into force immediately after annunciation.
