Replace the following DIXILAND delimited text of law 211, with the
following SWING delimited text.

To be eligible for the position of Judge, you may not be the citizen
invoking the judgment, nor anyone directly named in the request for
judgment. In cases where everyone is named in the request for judgment,
the Minister of Records presides as Judge. If, within one week of a
judgment, anyone feels that the judgment was unfair or unjust, they may
invoke an appeal judgment. In an appeal judgment, the new Judge (who must
satisfy previous eligibility requirements, as well as not be the previous
Judge (Unless no one else remains, in which it defaults to the Minister of
Records) either rules support for the previous Judge's actions, or
dismisses his actions. In the event of dismissal, the case is put up to
trial again with a third Judge (If anyone remains, else the Minister of
Records). However, a case may only be appealed once. (Thus a case up for
retrial may not be appealed.)

(1) You must be a citizen.
(2) You may not be the plaintiff (defined to be the person who filed the
request for judgment)
(3) You may not be the defendant (defined to be a single, specific
person, who the request for judgment is against).
(4) In the event of an appeals trial, you may have never been Judge on
this case before.

In the event that no one remains eligible for the position of Judge, the
requirement with the highest ordinal number will be removed, and again a
Judge will be selected. This process of removing the highest numbered
requirement may be recursively completed as many times as necessary in
order to have an eligible Judge. Note that up to one, and no more than
one defendant may be named on any single request for judgment. This
implies that if you want to file a request for judgment against multiple
citizens, you must do so via multiple requests for judgment.

On any case, an appeal, and only one appeal may be filed. No case may be
re-tried outside of the appeals process. If, after a verdict is made on
the original case, any citizen is unsatisfied with the verdict, an appeal
may be filed via a request for judgment. In the event of an appeal, a
second Judge, who must satisfy the previous eligibility requirements, has
two choices: (1) rule in favour of the original verdict, in which case the
original verdict stands as final, or (2) rule in opposition and make an
alternate verdict. In this case, a third Judge, who satisfies the
previous eligibility requirements, will rule the final verdict to be one
of the two previous Judge's verdicts. The third Judge may not create his
own verdict. Whichever the third Judge chooses, is the final verdict, and
may not be appealed.
