The Supreme Court of Justice (German: Obersten Gerichtshof), often simply called the Supreme Court, is one of three judicial bodies charged with final appellate jurisdiction in Austria. Whereas the Constitutional Court deals with constitutional law and the Supreme Administrative Court with public law, the Supreme Court is the highest instance in civil and criminal matters. These three Courts are hierarchically on the same level, there being no superiority or subordination between them.
