Star chamber has its origins in the English institution of the same name that tried people too powerful to be brought before the ordinary common-law courts; the fear was corruption. From the Middle Ages, the Star Chamber consisted of a committee of the English king’s council. The jurisdiction of the Star Chamber included forgery, perjury, riots, maintenance, fraud, libel, and conspiracy. It could impose fines, whipping, the pillory, prison sentences, and mutilation, but it could not impose the death penalty. Guy, J. A. Cardinal’s Court: The Impact of Thomas Wolsey in Star Chamber.

The Court of Star Chamber, known simply as the Star Chamber, was a supplement to common-law courts in England. The bulk of the cases heard by the Court of Star Chamber involved property rights, trade, government administration and public corruption. Wolsey used the court to prosecute forgery, fraud, perjury, riot, slander, and pretty much any action that could be considered a breach of the peace.

CROMPTON, RICHARD (fl. 1573–1599), lawyer, was of a family settled at Bedford Grange in the parish of Leigh, Lancashire, and was educated at Brasenose College, Oxford, but did not proceed to a degree. He became a member and bencher of the Middle Temple, ‘a barrister and councillor of note,’ as stated by Wood; was summer reader in 1573 and Lent reader in 1578; and ‘might have been called to the coif, had he not preferred his private studies and repose before public employment and riches. A selection of ‘Star-chamber Cases’ was made from this work and published in 1630 and 1641. His last work was issued in 1599, entitled ‘The Mansion of Magnanimitie: wherein is shewed the most high and honourable Acts of Sundrie English Kings, Princes, Duke. erformed in defence of their Princes and Countrie’ (W. Ponsonby, 4to).

The Star Chamber (Latin: Camera stellata) was an English court which sat at the royal Palace of Westminster, from the late 15th century to the mid-17th century (c. 1641), and was composed of Privy Councillors and common-law judges, to supplement the judicial activities of the common-law and equity courts in civil and criminal matters.

Aside from four cases brought for killing a deer, five for conspiracy, and two for marriage without consent, actions were brought once each for whipping women, rebellion, libel, scandal, and practice. According to an early seventeenth-century discourse on Star Chamber procedure, Star Chamber could issue injunctions in cases where another court’s decision was contested or when a party requested a judgment on a point of law. In these circumstances the plaintiff filed a bill in response to. 28.
