Legal Channels

(p.142) 5 Legal Channels
Sound-Politics in São Paulo

Leonardo Cardoso

Oxford University Press

The chapter is organized into two main sections. The first part focuses on three crucial translators in this network: the lawyer, the state prosecutor, and the appellate judge. These agents will guide us through the series of procedural steps necessary for moving along the legal channels. Once we have understood how these actors build and make decisions on noise litigation (step-by-step, document-by-document), we can then approach the five legal channels more fully. The second section focuses on jurisprudence. I discuss how cases enter the Palace of Justice as legal appeals and leave the building as either the confirmation or rebuttal of the administrative fine and initial judgment sentences. The section examines the weight of legal documents in the Court of Appeals and the most frequent strategies the parties use to articulate the law to their own advantage.

Keywords:   law, judiciary, litigation, São Paulo, Brazil, Latin America, ethnography, justice system, noise
