For the serenade-like musical genre, see Cassation (music).

A court of cassation is a high instance court that exists in some judicial systems. Courts of cassation do not re-examine the facts of a case, they are only competent for verifying the interpretation of the law. For this, they are appellate courts of the highest instance. In this way they differ from systems which have a supreme court which can rule on both the facts and the law of a case. The European Court of Justice serves also as a court answering questions of European Union law and thus can also be regarded a court of cassation.
