However, on a closer reading of the judgment, it strikes me that Malhotra J.’s dissent raises some crucial points, which remain unanswered in the opinions of the Chief Justice and Nariman J. – but are addressed in Chandrachud J.’s concurrence. For this reason, I will use this post to discuss the dissenting opinion, and flag its foundational arguments, and then – in the next post – examine Chandrachud J.’s concurrence. Maintainability How unusual – but how refreshing – to see a judge taking maintainability seriously, and that too in a PIL! Malhotra J. starts her analysis with the following observation: The right to move the Supreme Court … [Read more...] about The Sabarimala Judgment – II: Justice Malhotra, Group Autonomy, And Cultural Dissent
Sweden is without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and, for the first time since 2006, it's at the World Cup. That's the strange thing about Sweden. It may be better off without one of its best ever players. Sweden was expected to struggle after the international retirement of Ibrahimovic at the end of the European Championship in 2016. But it hasn't worked out that way. Our partner network Telemundo is livestreaming the game here. Here's how the 2018 FIFA World Cup works. (Published Monday, June 11, 2018) Sweden put a positive spin on the striker's absence by finishing ahead of Netherlands and then beating Italy in a playoff to qualify for Russia. It also beat France along the way. Maybe life won't be so bad without Ibrahimovic, whose dominance of the team might have been as much of a hindrance as a help. That notion has been suggested by the Swedish media. Sweden starts its first World Cup in 12 years on Monday against South Korea , a team that has failed to maintain its status in world … [Read more...] about Sweden, South Korea Need to Grab World Cup Chance in Tough Group

Viet Nam News Football MILAN — Inter Milan snatched the final Champions League berth with a dramatic come-from-behind 3-2 win over direct European rivals Lazio on the final day of the season at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday. Inter had to win in order to take third place from Lazio who had a superior head-to-head record and needed just to draw. Late goals from captain Mauro Icardi and Matias Vecino ensured Inter return to Europe for the first time since the 2011-2012 season, along with Juventus, Napoli and Roma. Lazio had led 2-1 with a quarter of an hour to go in Rome after Ivan Perisic turned the ball into his own net and Brazilian Anderson got a second four minutes before the break. But Danilo D’Ambrosio got one back after 29 minutes with Icardi slotting in a penalty after 78 minutes following a Stefan De Vrij foul to join Lazio’s Ciro Immobile as the top Serie A scorer this season with 29 goals. Lazio captain Senad Lulic was sent off late for a second yellow … [Read more...] about Inter Milan snatch Champions League spot from Lazio

Valencia Globe Staff May 18, 2018 On the booming Boston waterfront, Bradley Campbell was very much a new face on the docks.A veteran of environmental protection work in Washington, D.C., and New Jersey, he arrived in the city in late 2015 as the new president of Conservation Law Foundation, a venerable environmental advocacy group perhaps best known for its 1980s court fight to clean up Boston Harbor. One of his top priorities: Defend the public’s access to the waterfront amid a surge in development. Over more than 50 years, the foundation had earned a reputation as a responsible advocate, even when it resorted to litigation to achieve its goals. But in several recent showdowns, Campbell has riled Mayor Martin J. Walsh, other city officials, and community groups with what they say is a combative and arrogant approach that threatens to erode the … [Read more...] about Did this environmental group cross the line?
