Another Good Reason for Disregarding International Courts
Check this out. Lance Armstrong is going on trial in Italy for calling some guy a liar. The published comments actually were written in a French newspaper, but a brilliant Italian judge determined all by herself that because the Italian guy read the French story on the internet, that Armstrong can still be guilty of defamation. If found guilty, the penalty could be a one to six year jail sentence. Sounds like Armstrong may decide not to vacation in Italy anytime soon.
This is why it's a joke that some of the more liberal members of the US Supreme Court use international opinion to decide US cases. We need Alito now!
