Camus was interested in the absurdity of life. Here the court personifies this absurdity. The fact that the court is French taking place in an occupied country for the murder the court is not concerned about (alleged victim was an Arab) is rather absurd. The court is more interested in the fact that Meursault broke French and Christian law.
