I have another topicality press that is truly a t-press and actually works.

Basically a lot of cases try to justify t, by saying "The USFG has jurisdiction/authority within this process/system, there it is THE USFG's justice system."

This applies to: juvenile justice, protectorate/district justice, and military justice.


Here's how I run it:

I:
1. Must be THE USFG's CJS
2. There is only ONE specific USFG CJS

S:
1. Authority ≠ Definition: Just because the USFG has authority of a criminal jurisdiction, it does not mean it is THE USFG CJS.
2. Distinction Exists: If there is a legal, or even a rhetorical distinction between the traditional USFG CJS and another CJS (e.g. military justice system, state justice system, district justice system, juvenile justice system) then it disqualifies the latter from aff jurisdiction.

RTP:
1. Resolutional Distinction
2. Field Distinction (Experts, literature, law, common man)
3. Ground Balance

Impx


It seems funny for aff to say, "The military justice system for terrorists is terrible, so let's move them to normal court process." If you create that distinction, the LATTER is clearly where the reform must occur.

How many T-Presses can you think of? :P

I think I like this one much better than the last one, this sort of situation is what I faced when I went against a team who ran "Espionage."

This could work pretty nicely too. :)

Can you give some good examples of cases that would be off-topic with this?
