Judgement by an Einzelrichter in a divorce petition.
Chandu
one-man court/judge
Explanation:
If the offense charged calls for imprisonment of not more than three years (in case of larceny, not more than five years), the case comes to trial before a one-man court (Einzelrichter). If the offense charged calls for imprisonment of not more than ten years, the case is tried before a court composed of two professional judges (one of whom presides) and two lay judges (Schöffengericht). All cases calling for a minimum of five years and maximum exceeding ten years imprisonment are tried before a court composed of three professional judges and eight jurors (Geschworenengericht).
