ICJ live

An awaited ruling on whether World War II-era damages suits may proceed against Germany will be delivered by the International Court of Justice this Friday, February 3, Great Hall of Justice (left) of the Peace Palace at The Hague, Netherlands.
And you can watch delivery of the judgment live online, at 10 a.m. Hague time (that's 4 a.m. New York time).
As IntLawGrrl Beth Van Schaack has posted, at issue in Jurisdictional Immunities of the State (Germany v. Italy) is whether Italy violated international law by allowing persons who were subjected to forced labor during the war to sue Germany in Italian courts.
Check the court's website Friday if you'd like to see the session online. (credit for photo of a 2006 ICJ hearing)
