Second Georgian Civil Judge Sent for Secondment in U.S. Court

03 October 2018 Second Georgian Civil Judge Sent for Secondment in U.S. Court

USAID/PROLoG, as part of its expanded judicial exchange activities, sent its second Georgian civil judge to the U.S. for an intensive “secondment” placement in a U.S. court. Judge Madi Chantladze of Tbilisi City Court spent September 24-28 at the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia outside Washington, D.C. Judge Chantladze was hosted by the U.S. Judge Anthony Trenga, who previously visited Georgia to work with Georgian judges.

The schedule for Judge Chantladze was intensive. She attended civil as well as administrative hearings, and attended case settlement proceedings using court mediation. Judge Chantladze also researched disciplinary procedures for judges, cases of using for closure action, and intellectual property-related disputes. With the help of the manager of the federal District Court, Judge Chantladze also learned about the electronic case distribution system. As part of the secondment Judge Chantladze also attended the 30th Annual Intellectual Property Seminar organized by the Intellectual Property Center. During the last day of the visit, at an informal dinner, Judge Chantladze and U.S. judges discussed the friendly relations between Georgia and the United States, and expressed readiness for future cooperation.

Judge Chantladze expressed her gratitude to the USAID/PROLoG team for its excellent organization of the secondment. She also thanked the judges and court staff of the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia for hosting her and creating a fruitful working environment.
