Corte Marcial

On this day in 1855, in Mexico, the Ley Juárez (you'll need to use Google translate) tried to abolish special courts for the clergy and military in an attempt by justice minister Benito Juárez to eliminate the remnants of colonialism in Mexico and promote equality.

Item 15 established: The Supreme Court of Justice as a court-martial, with seven general officers and a prosecutor associated with it for this purpose. It would hear purely military or mixed criminal cases, in the terms provided in this law.
