Wait.... What about plea (which is extremely important)? The signing of some "consent decree's" automatically pleas one guilty. ie - a "stalkign order agreement"
Are consent decrees used (whether or not so called) in English law? I'm English and have never heard of them outside the US, but I may just be ignorant! 22.214.171.124 04:14, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Of great current interest
- No, "guilty plea" is relevant in criminal cases, not civil ones where "consent decree" is relevant. Technicality? Yes. Yes, consent decrees are used in many US Federal cases, and many are in effect at any one moment, some of them concerning police departments. Different spectators may take a keen interest in different ones. Used in other countries? Not that I know. Jim.henderson (talk) 18:01, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
