According to art. 11 sentence 1 k.p.c., the civil court is bound by the findings of a non-appealable verdict issued in criminal proceedings, concercing committing a crime. Generality and vagueness of this term causes considerable problems in practice, in particular with regard to binding of the civil court with findings of the criminal court on the amount of damage caused by the offender. The author, after outlining the situation of applying different procedures to the same act and identifying the normative basis of binding of the civil court with the criminal court judgment, analyzes the situations of determining the amount of property damage by the criminal court in case of conviction for: 1) crimes which element is danger of a damage property, 2) crimes which element is the possibility of causing damage to property, 3) crimes, in case of which the question of causing damage to property is with no meaning to constituting elements of a crime. It is essential whether the appropriate findings were made by the criminal court in the operative part or the grounds of the judgment. The study also addresses the problem of binding of a civil court with the conciction for an attempt of a crime.
