Since the publication of the previous edition, legislators have been busy with more than 20 amendments to the law concerning court costs, through which the court fee law also received numerous changes, which made an update of the reliable commentary necessary. The amount in dispute catalog of the jurisdiction is completely revised and newly composed. The "amount in dispute indices" have been considerably altered. The printed text on the cost regulations of the social court law was provided with short comments in the appendix. As expected, the flood of published higher court jurisdiction has not dwindled despite the new legal costs regulations. It still also partly pertained to questions of the old version, valid up to 30.06.2004, of the court fee law. This has only been used as far as the definition of the old and new versions objectively correspond to each other. The new edition also makes it possible to incorporate and thoroughly review the definition of procedural laws, particularly the questions of the procedures and amount in dispute. The comparison of the old and new regulations has been maintained. Literature and jurisdiction could be used to the end of June 2005.Meyer, Dieter is the author of 'Gerichtskostengesetz: Kommentar (de Gruyter Kommentar) (German Edition)', published 2005 under ISBN 9783899492507 and ISBN 3899492501.
