German term or phrase: Staatsgerichtshof v. Oberste Gerichtshof
I have a document from Liechtenstein, and the judgment is from the Staatsgerichtshof of that country, issuing a decision on the prior decision of the Oberste Gerichtshof. I am not fully sure how to translate these: Staatsgerichtshof = State Constitutional Court, Oberste Gerichtshof = Supreme Court ?
