At the same time, three new judges were appointed to the Trial Court. They are Thierry Deschanels (former vice-president of the court of justice in Bourg-en-Bresse), Anne-Sophie Houbart (former vice-president of the court of justice in Toulon) and Patrice Fey (former vice-president of the court of justice in Thonon-les-Bains).

It should also be noted that an order by the Secretary of the State for Justice, Director of Judicial Services and President of the State Council, also published on 18 August this year in the Journal of Monaco, states that Stéphane Braconnier, “titular member of the Supreme Court, is responsible, in order to ensure continuity of service as from 8 August 2023, and pending the appointment of the new President and Vice-President of the Supreme Court, for monitoring ongoing proceedings and for taking any urgent action.”
