by Kevin Jon Heller As readers no doubt know, the Ukraine has accepted the ICC’s jurisdiction on an ad hoc basis for acts committed between 21 November 2013 and 22 February 2014. The self-referral has already led to a good deal of intelligent commentary — see, for example, Mark Leon Goldberg’s discussion of the politics of an ICC investigation here and Mark Kersten’s convincing argument that Russia may not be particularly opposed to an ICC investigation here.

Right now, a man named Albert Woodfox is sitting in a concrete and steel cage in a prison near the northernmost edge of the State of Louisiana.

Hundreds of miles away, near the bayou in the state’s southern reaches, the widow of a slain prison guard has begun her second day of the… [read post]

In just the couple of short months since we took an in-depth look at so-called “net-neutrality,” there have been several major developments in the battle to define the future of the Internet not only here in the United States, but in the European Union as well. Why do you care about net-neutrality? Because anything that could jeopardize our ability to binge-watch “House of Cards” each year is worth understanding. So, I thought it would be a great time for an update on this… [read post]
