In 2008, the court handled 2,505 filings which amounted to 192 issues for each judge. Each judge is thus working at 111 percent, Macejková said, because each of them resolved 11 percent more filings than he or she was assigned.

Last year was quite positive in the number of cases closed as the Constitutional Court closed almost 99 percent of the files ‘inherited’ from the previous term, according to Macejková. She also noted that the international activities of the court were also extended last year to various forms of cooperation with its counterparts in Germany, Russia, Hungary and France.
