The thesis is aimed to examine the problematic aspects of implementation of the principle of state liability for the acts of national courts of final instance and possible application of alternative means of redress. The first part of the work is dedicated to the analysis of the validity of state liability for defective final judgments of courts. The second part intends to identify whether the principles of constitutional significance, such as judicial independence, impartiality, non-discrimination, res judicata, legal certainty are infringed when the Köbler doctrine is applied on the national level. The third part is devoted to the analysis of the conditions of state liability under EU law. Particular attention is paid to the requirement of a sufficiently serious breach of law and legal analysis of the content of fault. The fourth part is focused on possible alternative legal remedies for the protection of undermined right derived from EU law. The author discloses the content of these measures and discusses the question of their efficiency in relation to an action for damages against the State. The fifth part is devoted to the analysis of how Lithuania implements the obligations arising from the EU law. It is examined whether state's liability for defective final judgments of the national court is without prejudice to the provisions of the Constitution of the Republic of Lithuania, and what changes are needed to ensure the effective implementation of the EU law in Lithuanian legal system. The author considers the question whether a State may be liable for the decisions of Constitutional Court and possible alternatives for ensuring the protection of rights derived from the EU law.
