Countdown: Last scheduled game at Ricoh will start in 0 Days 0 Hours 0 minutes 0 Seconds Mark Robins has offered a cryptic answer after being asked if he’s hopeful Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena row can be resolved in the wake of this week’s Supreme Court ruling against the club. Britain's highest court has refused the football club permission to appeal the decision of the Court of Appeal not to allow a judicial review into the sale of the Ricoh Arena operating company ACL to Wasps. It is not known if this is the end of legal action - which Wasps have said is a barrier to City extending their deal to stay at the Ricoh Arena. The Sky Blues have been in talks with other clubs to groundshare next season as a contingency plan. The legal action brought by Otium Entertainment and Sky Blue Sports & Leisure, the Sisu-controlled companies that make up the football club, argued that ACL was undervalued when the city council sold its stake to Wasps.

A convicted murderer who argued blood filled tumours in his throat could burst if he is given the lethal injection has lost his fight for a "painless death". On Monday the United States Supreme Court ruled against Russell Bucklew, who had asked for a gas execution rather than a lethal injection for medical reasons. The 50-year-old had argued Missouri state's preferred method amounted to "cruel and unusual punishment" which is outlawed in the Eighth Amedment. The 5-4 ruling had the court split along its idealogical grounds, with President Donald Trump's second judicial nominee Bret Kavanaugh eventually siding with the other Republican picked justices after indicating he might join his liberal colleagues. In 1996 Bucklew was sentenced to death for rape, murder and kidnapping in an attack on his ex-girlfriend along with her new partner and his six-year-old son. In recent court filings he argued the congenital condition he has, cavernous hemangioma, would cause him excessive pain if he … [Read more...] about US Supreme Court rules murderer has ‘no right to a painless death’
Iceland’s Supreme Court has ruled entirely in favour of news outlet Stundin and media company Reykjavík Media in a media injunction case that has been ongoing since October 2017. Kjarninn reports that on Friday, the Supreme Court rejected all claims made by Glitnir HoldCo Ltd, the corporation that oversees the remaining assets of Glitnir bank. The first of these claims was that the journalists involved in the case should be legally compelled to share evidence that might have bearing on it, even if they might, in the course of their testimony, inadvertently reveal information about confidential sources. The company’s secondary claim was that the information reported on by Stundin and Reykjavík Media—information that was obtained from leaked bank documents—should be protected by bank confidentiality. Friday’s ruling did not address the validity of the original injunction, which was struck down by the Court of Appeals, or Landsréttur, in … [Read more...] about Supreme Court Rules in Favour of Press
