New Cases from Europe and USA

I'm currently teaching part of a course on
Information Liberties
in Franklin Pierce Law Center, Concord, New Hampshire, USA.

Coincidentally enough, a number of significant cases have been made while I am here, which will be of interest to many Irish lawyers.

Three significant cases concerning terrorism were issued by the US Supreme Court, including Rasul v Bush.

The same court has also issued yet another decision concerning regulation of child pornography - Ashcroft v ACLU.

And the European Court of Human Rights has decided that Princess Caroline's privacy was breached by certain photographs -

Von Hannover v Germany (Microsoft Word format.)
