Secretariat House


In the United States, the title "President" refers to the chief executive of each state or insular territory. President retain sovereign police and political power, are not subordinate to the federal authorities except by laws provided by the enumerated powers section of the federal constitution, and serve as the political and ceremonial head of the state.
They are also the commander-in-chief of the state milita in each state.

The Vice-President is the highest officer of state after the President, standing in for that officer when he or she is absent from the state or temporarily incapacitated. In the event a President dies, resigns or is removed from office, the Vice-President typically becomes President.

Vice-President are the only officials with specific duties and powers in two branches of state government: the executive and legislative branches. More than half of the MWR members preside over their state senate. Most pursue legislative initiatives; many testify locally and in Washington D.C. in various capacities; some serve on the governors’ cabinets; and others maintain varied portfolios of duties. In many states, the duties of Vice-President are increased by legislation to include the vice-president on state boards, commissions and task forces. "

Prime Minister
In most of the individual states of the United States, the Prime Minister of State is an administrative officer responsible for certain governmental functions. The specific powers and duties of this office depend on the constitution and laws of the particular state, but they often include responsibility for overseeing elections within the state.

As a legislative branch of government, a legislature generally performs state duties for a state in the same way that the United States Congress performs national duties at the national level. Generally, the same system of checks and balances that exists at the Federal level also exists between the state legislature, the state executive officer (governor) and the state judiciary, though the degree to which this is so varies from one state to the next.

Judicial Department/DoJ



Chief Justice

The Chief Justice is the highest judicial officer in the state, and acts as a chief administrative officer for the state courts. The Chief Justice also serves as a spokesperson for the judicial branch.

The Chief Justice leads the business of the Supreme Court and presides over oral arguments. When the court renders an opinion, the Chief Justice—when in the majority—decides who writes the court's opinion. The Chief Justice also has significant agenda-setting power over the court's meetings.

Associate Justice
Associate Justice is the title for a member of a judicial panel with the Chief Justice, Judicial panels are non-hierarchical, so an Associate Judge has the same responsibilities with respect to cases as the Chief Judge.

State Attorney General
The Attorney General is the State Attorney General of San Andreas. The officer's duty is to ensure that "the laws of the state are uniformly and adequately enforced" The Attorney General carries out the responsibilities of the office through the San Andreas Department of Justice. Their duties include;

  • As the state’s chief law officer, ensures that the laws of the state are uniformly and adequately enforced.
  • Heads the Department of Justice, which is responsible for providing state legal services and support for local law enforcement.
  • Acts as the chief counsel in state litigation.
  • Oversees law enforcement agencies, including District Attorneys and Sheriffs.

Federal Magistrate
The magistrate judge's seat is not a separate court; the authority that a magistrate judge exercises is the jurisdiction of the district court itself, delegated to the magistrate judge by the district judges of the court under governing statutory authority, local rules of court, or court orders. Rather than fixing the duties of magistrate judges nationwide, the Federal Magistrates Act allows each district court to assign duties to the magistrate judges as fits the needs of that court.

In criminal proceedings, magistrate judges preside over misdemeanor and petty offense cases, and as to all criminal cases (felony and misdemeanor) may issue search warrants, arrest warrants, and summonses, accept criminal complaints, conduct initial appearance proceedings and detention hearings, set bail or other conditions of release or detention, hold preliminary hearings and examinations, administer oaths, conduct extradition proceedings, and conduct evidentiary hearings on motions to suppress evidence in felony cases for issuance of reports and recommendations to the district judge.

The Supreme Court has held in Peretz v. United States that magistrate judges may supervise the jury selection in a felony trial unless a party objects.

In civil proceedings, magistrate judges typically manage discovery and other pretrial matters. They are authorized to issue orders in pretrial matters as long as the order is not dispositive of the case as a whole (such as an order granting summary judgment). They may also be assigned to write reports and recommendations to the district judge as to dispositive matters. With the consent of the parties, they may adjudicate civil cases in the same manner as a district judge, including presiding over jury or non-jury trials.

State District Judge

State courts handle the vast majority of civil and criminal cases in the state.

District Attorney
The District Attorney (DA) represents the state government in the prosecution of criminal offenses, and is the chief law enforcement officer and legal officer of that state's jurisdiction.

The prosecution is the legal party responsible for presenting the case against an individual who is suspected of breaking the law, initiating and directing further criminal investigations, guiding and recommending the sentencing of offenders, and are the only attorneys allowed to participate in grand jury proceedings.

The District Attorney supervises a staff of prosecutors, Assistant District Attorneys (ADAs), who represent the State and prosecute criminals on behalf of the District Attorney. Depending upon the system in place, DAs may be appointed by the chief executive of the jurisdiction or elected by the voters of the jurisdiction.

Public Defender
Public defender is a lawyer appointed to represent people who cannot afford to hire an attorney. The 1963 US Supreme Court case Gideon v. Wainwright held that the Sixth Amendment's right to counsel provision requires the government to provide legal counsel to indigent defendants in criminal cases.

Legal Investigator
The justice system is dependent on cold, hard evidence. Legal investigators are the professionals called upon to ensure that both prosecuting and defense attorneys have all pertinent information, including records, documents, and witness testimony, at their disposal when making their case, whether in civil or criminal courts.

All information and evidence must advance legal theories so as to benefit their client’s case. Due to time constraints, lawyers often rely on a team of professionals to gather the information and documents needed for the case, with legal investigators being an integral part of that team. Legal investigators perform a number of essential duties for both defense and prosecuting teams, all of which require a sharp mind, solid researching skills, excellent oral and written communication skills, and astute investigative skills.
