Saddam Hussein Trial Nuts Rejoice

I’ve been following some of the rumblings about the upcoming SH trial, although purely as an avid observer of the ECHR’s developing doctrine on extraterritorial jurisdiction and how it might apply as a possible defense.  Personally I think little will come out of any extraterritorial application of the ECHR however, for both political and legal issues. It is indeed a stretch, although worth a noteworthy mention.

In anycase, the good folks over at Case Western Reserve Law School have assembled a pretty good selection of international law experts and put together a Saddam Hussein trial blog called Grotian Moment. Lots of good reading over there for those with an interest in following trials other than Scott Peterson’s or OJ’s.
