Court present for the administration of justice, to which reference has already been made, it is inimical to the administration of justice for a civil court to compel self-­incriminatory disclosures, while fashioning orders to prevent the use of the information thus obtained in a court vested with criminal jurisdiction with respect to the matters disclosed.
The State was not a party to the proceedings, The Court said that all the restrictions on the use of the disclosed material under the protective regime devised by the NSW Court of Appeal could be rendered nugatory with the leave of a judge of the Equity Division of the Supreme Court (pp.7 and 16).

The farmers asked the court to limit the need to identify surface freshwaters as vulnerable only where the high nitrate concentrations are caused solely by farming, and not just as a significant contribution to an overall nitrate problem from all potential sources.
But the court offered farmers little relief and said the EU legislation was aimed at protecting individuals from unsafe drinking water and it did not have to distinguish whether the source of nitrate was agricultural or otherwise.
The court found that the environmental action programme restricting the use of nitrate-based fertilizers was necessary to protect the public health and therefore pursued an objective of general interest without the substance of the right to property being impaired.

 ON KITH AND KINE - Case Study One: Compassion in World Farming and Calves in Crates
Towards the end of 1995 the High Court of England and Wales referred to the European Court for a preliminary ruling in the case R v.
The action before the High Court was brought by a public interest association, acting against a backdrop of heightened public opposition in the United Kingdom to the 'veal crate system', or the raising of calves 'in individual box-like structures where they remain until they are removed for slaughter approximately five months later'.
However, the European Court went on to conclude that such measures were susceptible to justification on the basis of considerations relating to public health and environmental protection, both of which constitute mandatory requirements recognized by Community law.

However, I understand that in Scotland it is simply not necessary to make provision for the Court of Session to remit the matter being looked at by the court to a tribunal; it is part of a court's inherent jurisdiction.
I note what the Foreign Secretary has said in his Statement, but perhaps the noble Baroness the Minister could elaborate as to whether he stressed the importance of mediation and the importance of avoiding a rescue attempt which could be botched and which could cost the lives of innocent men and women.
The High Commissioner stressed to the Ugandan authorities that every effort should be made to secure the rapid and safe return of the hostages.

 English Courts Rule against Trademark Holder in Domain Dispute
Both claims were rejected with the court ruling that the term "phones 4 u" was descriptive and that it had not acquired sufficient distinctiveness through use.
The court accepted the domain owner's contention that when he registered the domain he was unaware of any trademark rights to the term despite one of the defendant's stores being located near the domain owner's office.
Therefore perhaps similarly to the court ruling, just because they hold the trademark to shoelaces does not mean that they can claim trademark over every dictionary entry and indeed they would already have no claim to my domain...

This rule can, as has been pointed out by the Permanent Court of International Justice, be altered by the express or implied terms of the treaty in which case its provisions become self-executory.
But the true situation is that such declarations of policy do not have statutory effect; have not the force of law at all, and therefore cannot affect a statute.
The terms of the statute in this case are perfectly clear and are binding on the courts of this country.

The UK is obliged to comply with its international and domestic legal obligations, including the conducting of effective, prompt, impartial, independent and thorough investigations into allegations of six unlawful killings in Iraq, Amnesty International said after today's judgement of the High Court of England and Wales.
The High Court found in favour of Baha Mousa's family holding that both the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA) apply and that inquiries conducted so far into his death did not satisfy the requirements of the ECHR.
Inspite of this, the High Court held that neither the ECHR nor the HRA were applicable.
