On February 6, 2002, María Cristina Reverón Trujillo was arbitrarily dismissed from her judicial position. The Political-Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice later annulled the dismissal as in violation of the law. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights. However, it did not order the reinstatement of the alleged victim to her position, nor the payment of the salaries and social benefits she did not receive.
