  • [Practice Summary]
  • 【实务总结】
  • Cases about disputes over construction contracts for construction projects concern projects funds of constructors. They are often related to salaries of migrant workers and easily cause risks of social instability. Due to judicial expertise of construction costs, it usually takes quite a long time to try such cases and constructors wish to receive the project funds as soon as possible, which has raised more pressing requirements for judicial efficiency. A large amount of project funds is one feature of cases about disputes over construction contracts for construction projects. In general, construction costs require judicial expertise. Due to multiple project items in dispute and high expertise, more difficulties are involved. Besides, engineering data and accounts in the payment of project funds are complicated. The pronouncement of judgments of this type of cases require the completion of account checks, review of engineering data, and consultation of professional questions in advance and it raises higher requirements for pretrial preparations and trial work. In the process of pretrial preparation, besides judge assistants' contact and communication with both parties in advance and effective completion of the preparatory work including exchange of new evidence, the most important preparatory work in these cases is learning of architectural expertise involved in items under dispute of both parties. By means of communication with expertise personnel, online search of data, and consultation with the relevant specialized persons, judges fully learn the relevant expertise knowledge and can make a professional judgment under the circumstance of clear facts. After the judgment of second instance was pronounced, both parties expressed their satisfaction.
  • 建设工程施工合同纠纷案件关系到施工人的工程款,且多和农民工工资相联系,容易产生不稳定因素。而此类案件往往因工程造价司法鉴定导致审理时间较长,施工方希望早日拿到工程款,就对司法效率提出了更迫切的要求。但建设工程施工合同纠纷案件的特点是,工程款数额大,工程造价一般需经司法鉴定,争议的工程项目较多,专业性强,难度较大。工程资料及支付工程款的账目繁杂。选择这类案件当庭宣判,需要提前做好大量的账目核对、工程资料审阅、专业问题咨询等工作,对庭前准备及庭审工作提出了更高的要求。庭前准备过程中,除了由法官助理提前与双方当事人联系沟通,做好新证据交换等方面准备工作外,这类案件最主要的准备工作是需要针对当事人争议项目涉及的建筑专业知识进行学习了解,通过与鉴定人员沟通、网上查资料、咨询相关专业人员的途径对相关专业知识予以充分了解,在事实清楚的情况下即可做出专业的判断。二审宣判后,当事人双方均表示满意。

  • [Practice Summary]
  • 【实务总结】
  • This is a model case where after the rules on pronouncement of judgments in court were interpreted, both parties separately withdrew their appeals. On the one hand, by holding a pretrial conference, the presiding judges reviewed the focal disputes of the case, comprehensively examined evidence, fixed undisputed facts, and fully grasped case facts and application of law, and both parties also had clear expectations for litigation results. Therefore, the case had the basis for pronouncing the judgment in court. During the period, the judges also conducted a large amount of mediation work. Although no mediation agreement was finally reached, both parties' confrontational feelings were greatly mitigated, which made Jinhua Company apply for withdrawing its appeal at the beginning of the court trial on the second day; on the other hand, through open and transparent trial activities, the trial process of the case was subject to public and media supervision. Both parties were granted the rights to fully exercise proof and argument, which enhanced Xinzhengyuan Company's comprehension of fair trial of the case. When the chief judge decided to pronounce the judgment in court after declaring adjournment for review, Xinzhengyuan Company also selected withdrawal of its appeal, which resulted in the satisfactory settlement of the disputes lasting for many years. It turns out that the pronouncement of judgments in court has played positive roles in improving trial efficiency and preventing litigation delays. The attorney of Xinzhengyuan Company surnamed Wang said: “This case involves interests of 782 proprietors and lasts for more than seven years. The proprietors also expect the settlement of disputes as soon as possible. By taking it into account, upon deliberation, we agree to withdraw the appeal and the collegial panel also agrees with us. On behalf of my client and the proprietors, I would like to say thank you to judges.”
  • 本案为释明当庭宣判规则后促使双方当事人分别撤回上诉的典型案例。一方面,通过召开庭前会议,主审法官梳理了案件的争议焦点,全面审核了证据,固定了无争议的事实,对案情及法律适用有了充分的把握,双方当事人也对诉讼结果有了清晰的预期,本案具备当庭宣判的基础。期间还做了大量的调解工作,虽然最终未达成调解协议,但极大地缓和了双方的对立情绪,使得金华公司在第二天开庭伊始就申请撤回上诉;另一方面,通过公开透明的庭审活动,将案件审理过程置于大众及媒体监督之下,给予双方充分行使举证及辩论权利,增强了新政源公司对案件得到公正判决的认识。当审判长宣布休庭评议后决定当庭宣判时,新政源公司亦选择了撤回上诉,使得历时多年的纠纷获得圆满的解决。事实证明,当庭宣判在提高庭审效率、防止诉讼拖延方面发挥了积极作用。新政源公司的代理律师王某说:“本案涉及782名业主的利益,历时七年多时间,业主们也很期盼尽快解决,考虑到这一点,我们经过商议,同意撤诉,合议庭也同意我们的意见。在这里,代表我的当事人,代表广大业主向法官们道一声感谢。”

  • 【案情简介】
  • On September 30, 2014, Wei issued to Chen an IOU, which specified that “Up to September 30, 2014, Wei has borrowed CNY 176,212,000 in cash from Chen. From October 1, 2014, the interest of the principal of CNY 130 million should be calculated at the daily rate of 3‰. Borrower: Wei and Guarantor: Jintaoyuan Company.” Chen claimed the payment of the money for multiple times, but all failed. Afterwards, he filed a lawsuit with the Higher People's Court of Shanxi Province against defendants Wei and Jintaoyuan Company. The Higher People's Court of Shanxi Province rendered a judgment that: Defendants Wei and Jintaoyuan Company should pay Chen the loan of CNY 176,165,334 and the interest thereof. Jintaoyuan Company refused to accept the judgment of first instance and appealed.

  • [Practice Summary]
  • 【实务总结】
  • The major focal dispute of this case was whether CNY 46.212 million included the principal of CNY 35 million and whether such principal of CNY 35 million has been returned. The claims of both parties were supported by evidence to some extent, but no party has formed preponderance of evidence. Considering that the fund transfers were completed through a party not involved surnamed Yu, the parties may be ordered to provide the relevant evidence or the people's court may investigate and collect evidence according to its functions. If this case was remanded to the original court for retrial and continued finding of the relevant facts, it totally followed the legal procedures. However, in this way, the settlement of disputes lasting for many years would be delayed for another one or two years, which was adverse to the timely settlement of disputes. The collegial panel thus decided to conduct the mediation work of the parties to realize the closure of the case by mediation. Upon efforts of members of the collegial panel and judge assistants to both parties, appellee voluntarily abandoned the claim of CNY 35 million. The agreement reached between the creditor and the guarantor did not impair the rights and interests of the principal debtor, which should be confirmed by the court. However, since the principal debtor did not appear in court, it was inappropriate to issue a mediation agreement. Therefore, a judgment was pronounced in court, the judgment was served in a timely manner, and both parties were satisfied. The pronouncement of judgment of this case in court has fully explained the following two points: First, all members of the collegial panel should be brought into full play in the court trial. The court trial is not the “one-man show” of the presiding judges. In each link from court investigation, argument to mediation, the members of the collegial panel should be immersed, divide work, and mutually collaborate and cooperate with each other, so as to ensure substantiation of court trial. Second, the combination of mediation and judgment may be realized in one case. The collegial panel may, according to the will of the parties, mediate one or more claims in the case. After a consensus is reached, such claims may be recorded in transcripts or even claims for which a mediation agreement has been reached may form an independent decision; for claims to which mediation is inappropriate or a consensus fails to be reached, a judgment should be directly rendered. On the premise of fully respecting the parties' procedural disposition right and s
  • 本案的主要争议焦点是借条中的4621.2万元是否包含3500万元本金以及该3500万元是否归还问题。双方主张均有一定证据支持,但各方尚未形成证据优势。鉴于双方资金往来均是通过案外人于某等支付,可以责令当事人提供有关证据或人民法院依职权调查取证。如将本案发回重审,由原审法院继续查清有关事实完全符合法律程序,但这样会使多年未结的纠纷又要拖延一至两年,不利于及时定分止争。合议庭遂决定做当事人的调解工作,力争调解结案。经合议庭成员、法官助理分头做双方工作,被上诉人自愿放弃3500万元的请求。债权人与担保人达成的协议未损害主债务人的权益,法院予以确认。但主债务人没有到庭,不宜出具调解书,遂以判决的形式,当庭宣判,及时发送了判决书,双方当事人均很满意。本案当庭宣判,充分说明了两点。第一,在庭审中要充分发挥合议庭所有成员作用。庭审不是主审法官的“独角戏”。从法庭调查、辩论到调解的每一个环节,合议庭成员均要全身心投入,分工协作,互相配合,确保庭审实质化。第二,在一个案件中可以实现调判结合。合议庭可以根据当事人的意愿,对案件中一个或一个以上的请求事项进行调解,达成一致后,记入笔录,甚至可以对达成调解协议的事项单独制做调解书;对不宜调解或达不成一致意见的请求事项,直接判决。在尊重当事人程序处分权和实体处分权的前提下,调解与判决两种方式在一个案件中完全可以并行不悖,更好地实现纠纷处
