SCP-XXXX, during a recess.

Item Number: SCP-XXXX

Clearance Level: Four

Containment Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation cooperation with GoI-2718 (Jackson & Sons) is necessary to facilitate the containment of SCP-XXXX. Primary attorneys from GoI-2718 are to assist SCP-XXXX-1 in the containment of SCP-XXXX-2, and are to ensure that the current case continues indefinitely.

SCP-XXXX-1 is to receive sufficient living quarters, food, and extra, tentative supplies on a case-by-case basis. If SCP-XXXX-1 is incapacitated, or is in any way unfit to perform legal counsel, Foundation legal experts are to fulfill its role instead. SCP-XXXX-2 is currently in a weakened state due to SCP-XXXX's effects. SCP-XXXX-2, thus, must not be allowed to leave SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX-2 must not win its case. Foundation personnel are to prevent this outcome by any means necessary.

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to a jurohazardous series of events occurring within an extraspatial courthouse, accessed via the abilities of SCP-XXXX-1. The rooms of SCP-XXXX appear similar to a Victorian civil court — however, proceedings function similar to that of a United States federal court, though at a very basic level — cross examination, witness calling, and deliberation periods are all present, though in a different structure than that of any courtroom system in recorded history.

SCP-XXXX functions as a pseudo-nullification field, similar to OBELISK systems in operation by the Foundation, in that it selectively negates certain anomalous properties1 of entities being prosecuted in proceedings of SCP-XXXX. Furthermore, SCP-XXXX's properties prevent the injury or death of any participating entities; aging is stopped entirely, and actions that would typically cause bodily harm have no effect on entities within its confines.

SCP-XXXX's layout.

SCP-XXXX is currently inhabited by 179 humanoid entities of varying species and appearances, and has been for approximately 21 years. The origin of these species are unknown; most function as spectators in the courtroom galley, witneses, bailiffs, stenographers, assistants and other minor roles in a court of law. The entities that fulfill these roles will change each day — some may be spectators, then bailiffs the next day, and so on. However, the entities which fill the roles of the jury members, judge, defendant, defense attorney, and prosecutor are fixed, and do not change.

SCP-XXXX-1, the prosecution, is Cyril Jackson, founder of GoI-2718. SCP-XXXX-1 displays minor spatially manipulative abilities within SCP-XXXX's confines, which it uses to send witnesses, assistants, and Foundation personnel to and from SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX-1's abilities are the sole method of traveling to and from SCP-XXXX, aside from the current case reaching a verdict. SCP-XXXX-1 is currently prosecuting SCP-XXXX-2, and has been for as long as SCP-XXXX's current case has been in session — 21 years.

SCP-XXXX-2 is an extraspatial, extratemporal, reality-bending entity that currently manifests as "Benjamin Matlock", a fictional character portrayed by American actor Andy Griffiths (1926-2012), from the television legal drama Matlock. Thermal imaging has shown SCP-XXXX-2's true form to be dendritic, insectoid, and plant-like in nature, though when viewed with the naked eye, SCP-XXXX-2 is an exact replica of Griffiths' character during Matlock's 4th season.

SCP-XXXX-2, which refers to itself as a Mr. "Jeremiah Eykes," if allowed to travel out of SCP-XXXX's confines, is capable of and willing to perform a CK-class "Reality Restructuring" scenario. SCP-XXXX-2 is currently being prosecuted by SCP-XXXX-1 for 371 assorted charges, including murder, attempt to commit murder, assault, illegal seizure of assets, and tax evasion.
