Attorney David Uhlíř appointed to Constitutional Court

President Miloš Zeman on Wednesday appointed attorney David Uhlíř judge of the Constitutional Court. Mr Uhlíř, an expert on civil law, has served as deputy chair of the Czech Bar Association; he replaces Ivana Janů at the top court whose mandate expired in September. Justifying his choice, President Zeman said that the Constitutional Court should also have an attorney in its ranks. Mr Uhlíř’s nomination was approved by the Senate last week. With 15 judges, the Constitutional Court is now complete.
