Asker: Helena, thanks for your reference. I always appreciate country-specific texts. It actually has some useful things in it.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)

  -> I will be happy to see a better answer from you. Even though it is tribunal de paix it does not mean it cant be used for the high court. It was a suggestion anyway. The terminology is quite close to the EN

agree  philgoddard: How dare you suggest that Daryo provide a "better answer"? His/her fulltime job as Disagreer in Chief leaves little time for such mundane things.

agree  Ben Gaia: It would give me great pleasure when challenged on my own helpful suggestions, for the challenger to provide a better solution.
