Nebo taky: US Supreme Court Further Limits Access to US Courts for Conduct Occurring Abroad ("The Supreme Court determined that the railway is entitled to sovereign immunity from suit.

  • Moscow City Court's judgment on Burkov v. Google on the case of protection of privacy of email correspondance ("A. L.

And where once police worked closely with local communities to solve crimes, now they struggle to catch criminals. The system relies on confessions, which form the basis of nine-tenths of criminal prosecutions. Many confessions are extracted under duress.")
  • "The Supreme Court of Bermuda issued a landmark decision on November 27, 2015 finding that persons in same-sex relationships with Bermudians should have the same rights as opposite-sex spouses of Bermudians to live in Bermuda and to seek employment there."
