Justice(s) denied?

I looks like the two Constitutional court judges ( see here for Stanik) dismissed by Yuschenko tried to find a court that would reinstate them. Their claim was that Yuschenko had no right to dismiss them. (Why wouldn’t they assume it’s a political question whether he has the power?)

According to the news last night, the two judges first went to a court in Pechersk region. That judge refused. They went to a second court and that judge ruled that the dismissal was appropriate. Maybe there is hope in some of these lower judges?
