Although the German Bundesverfassungsgericht has become one of the most famous constitutional courts in the world, there is an older, less ambitious but nonetheless interesting tradition of constitutional review in Germany. In this article an analysis will be undertaken of the functioning and case law of the Staatsgerichtshof fur das deutsche Reich (RStGH), especially its case law on federal disputes, to see whether this half-forgotten court of the Weimar years could be an interesting role model for the Kingdom of the Netherlands, where the discussion on a new constitutional arrangement for the resolution of federal disputes has been paralysed for years.
