Jewish Judge Backed by Czechoslovak High Court

The Higher Court in the city of Moravska-Ostrava today overruled the objection

raised by the attorney for a local anti-Semitic newspaper against having his case tried in the District Court before Judge Kaempf, a Jew.

When the case was called, the attorney voiced his objection against Judge Kaempf presiding. The judge immediately referred the case to the Higher Court.

In overruling the attorney, the Higher Court stated that in Czechoslovakia the removal of a judge because of his religion is not permitted.
