After an explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Japan’s high court has ruled that a Japanese law firm should be given a name that reflects its history and business strategy.
The court ruled that naming law firm Kabukicho in honour of former prime minister Nobuhiko Noda, who was also president from 2002 to 2005, was unconstitutional.
In a decision published on Wednesday, the court upheld a lower court ruling that Kabukichos name should be Kabukiyos.
It also found that Kabukiya, a name used in a series of corporate documents from the early 1990s, should be scrapped.
The ruling comes amid a rising debate about the name of the Japanese high court and what should be its official name.
The Supreme Court is a body of nine judges appointed by the prime minister.
It is the highest court in Japan.
The supreme court also has jurisdiction over the constitutionality of legislation, including criminal cases, and can be invoked in a criminal case.
It does not have to rule on whether the legislation is constitutional or not.
Kabukiyos name The ruling was the first time a Japanese high law court has declared the name Kabukie to be unconstitutional.
It came after a case in which a law firm named Kabukiys name in honour was challenged in a case filed by a family.
In 2016, Kabukiyo was named in a Japanese court, the Japan High Court of Appeal, for the same reason as Kabukinys name.
In that case, Kabukinai was the name that was initially used.
In 2017, Kabakuyos lawyer, Takako Yamada, sued the court to overturn the name and get the name back.
The law firm, founded in 1952, is known for its expertise in litigation, corporate law, and the use of names in legal documents.
In addition to being a firm of lawyers, Kabukeys clients have included the president of the United States, the Japanese prime minister, and other prominent Japanese politicians.
It has a presence in the United Kingdom, Singapore, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Brazil.
It recently won the right to rename a Tokyo office building in honour a former prime minster.
Kabukyo was founded in the late 1950s by Kabuki Yotsuya, the former prime ministers first chief of staff.
In the 1980s, it was known as Kabukikyo and it gained notoriety when it changed its name to Kabukyos law firm in honor of former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, who died in 1995.
It later renamed itself KabukiYos law office in honour Yukio.
In recent years, Kabuchiyo has been called a law school in Japan and the Japanese government has referred to the firm as the Kabukiya Law School.
Kabuchiya has since gone through numerous name changes and is now known as the Law School of Kabukis Law office.
