  REDRESS PROCEDURE
 
  The redress procedures referred to in Article 33 of the Regulation are action for annulment (žaloba pro zmatečnost) in accordance with Section 229 et seq. of the Code of Civil Procedure, action for a new trial (zaloba na obnovu rizeni) in accordance with Section 228 et seq. of the Code of Civil Procedure and extraordinary appeal (dovolání) in accordance with Section 236 et seq. of the Code of Civil Procedure (dovolani) in accordance with Section 236 et seq. of the Code of Civil Procedure and for certain cases also in accordance with Section 30 of the Special Judicial Proceedings Act.

However, the extraordinary appeal is not admissible against judgments on the substance of the case regarding the maintenance obligations.

The jurisdiction in respect of the action for annulment and action for a new trial lies with the court which ruled at first instance. In some special cases the jurisdiction lies with the court whose decision has been contested (see Section 235a of the Code of Civil Procedure). The jurisdiction over the case regarding the extraordinary appeal lies with the Supreme Court – address: Nejvyšší soud ČR, Burešova 20, 657 37 Brno, Czech Republic.
