Abstract

Adopting the principle of praesumptio iustae causa in law of administrative procedure has implications for two issues, the basis for justification and the appropriate dictum of an administrative court decision as a response to a lawsuit against an administrative decision that was deemed valid until its cancellation. The justification for the principle of praesumptio iustae causa is the thesis of separateness in legal positivism. It holds that the validity of legal norms and their annulment depends on the law itself. Based on the separability thesis, administrative decisions are valid under any circumstances until a later or administrative court decision annuls them. The dictum of the decision of the administrative court that is appropriate to respond to a lawsuit against an administration decision is to state that the administrative decision is voidable, which means that the decision and its legal consequences are terminated when the administrative court decides.
