Daily Little Law Links

November 13th, 2009

It’s not your imagination, these are getting shorter due largely to trust law taking longer.  Hopefully next week will be better.

  • It seems to be asking for trouble have a referendum on the voting system on an polling day, but that is apparently what Tessa Jowell has in mind.  I refer you to the much more informed UK Polling Report for more details about the proposals and its likelihood of success.
  • The BA – Iberia merger seems to me to be a legal minefield.  Competition, pensions, staff with a tendency to strike… The Times seems to agree.
  • Those accused of plotting the terrorist attacks on the U.S. in 2001 are being moved from Guantanamo Bay to be tried in a New York federal court. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has said he expects prosecutors to seek the death penalty. Expect to hear a lot about evidence obtained under torture. More details in the New York Times.
