The article deals with an issue related to the performance of the judge’s duty. The judge did not rule on one of the several questions raised by the plaintiff. The Senate of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Latvia has included in the case law a decision in which it has been established that the plaintiff, without exercising his right to submit a request to the court for making an additional judgment, has lost that case. At the same time, the Senate of the Supreme Court did not take any action to prosecute a judge who had not fulfilled his duty imposed on him by law – to decide all claims filed. The article addresses these issues and provides an explanation of the importance and impact of the exercise of rights and obligations on society as a whole.
