Soudní novinky 16/16 (Gayové a soudy v Číně)

  • Wilders trial: Judge rejects request to quiz Dutch PM ("Wilders is on trial for comments he made in March 2014, when he asked a crowd if they wanted “more or fewer Moroccans” in their country. After the crowd cheered “fewer, fewer”, he responded: “Then we will arrange that.” He has been charged with insulting a group based on race, inciting hatred and a more general offence of discrimination. The case is likely to focus on two core European values: Wilders will claim he was exercising free speech, prosecutors will argue that he is guilty of discrimination.")
  • EU Justice Scoreboard 2016 - každoroční QN srovnání evropských soudních systémů.
  • Bouře uvnitř SDEU: EU court reforms damaged system, judge says ("Last year's reform of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) weakened the court's efficiency, led to "useless spending" and dealt a blow to the court's independence, a judge has said in a report.") vs. Court of Justice defends doubling number of judges ("He (Jaeger) added that new policy themes the European Union has embraced, like the Banking Union, will lead to litigation in the General Court. “Any new field the European Union is entering, triggers more work,” he said.").
  • "The United Nations human rights office today expressed concern about yesterday’s ruling by Venezuela’s top court against a bill that could serve as the basis for a path of dialogue and reconciliation in that country. (..) Upon the request of the Government, High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein had sent a legal analysis of the bill to Venezuela, advising that the text was generally in conformity with international human rights standards, the spokesperson said.")
  • "A court in China has dismissed a same sex couple’s application to marry in a landmark case. (..) Several hundred cheering supporters gathered outside the courthouse and around 100 spectators were allowed in before court officials had to turn people away due to a lack of capacity. Homosexuality was decriminalized in China in 1997 and taken off the list of official mental disorders in 2001, but there is no legal provision for same sex marriage or civil partnerships,"
  • California Appeals Court Reverses Decision to Overturn Teacher Tenure Rules ("A California appeals court ruled on Thursday that the state’s job protections for teachers do not deprive poor and minority students of a quality education or violate their civil rights — reversing a landmark lower court decision that had overturned the state’s teacher tenure rules. (..) In reversing the trial court’s decision, a panel of three appeals judges wrote that if ineffective teachers are in place, the statutes themselves were not to blame because it was school and district administrators who “determine where teachers within a district are assigned to teach.” The laws themselves, the judges wrote, do not instruct districts in where to place teachers. “The court’s job is merely to determine whether the statutes are constitutional,” the panel wrote, “not if they are ‘a good idea.’” (..) The plaintiffs in the case, known as Vergara v. California, said they would appeal to the state Supreme Court.")
