This is TOO EXCITING not to tweet.

#Germany started proceedings against #Italy at the #ICJ for alleged violations of its sovereign immunity.

It’s been a long time in the making. Many of us are probably not surprised. 🫢

It’s time for Germany v. Italy—Reloaded.

A thread 🪡 After the ICJ’s 2012 judgment in Germany v. Italy (link below), the Italian Parliament passed Law 5/2013. That law required Italian courts to decline jurisdiction in claims against Germany of the kind which had given rise to the ICJ litigation. 👩🏻‍💼

A few thoughts about #Ukraine’s case at the #ICJ. Some have already tweeted on this (@OriPomson, @VidigalGeraldo, @amirafarhadi, @niccoloridi and @mabecker17 among others)—here’s my take. ✍🏻

#UkraineRussiaWar #UkraineInvasion

Ukraine’a Application: icj-cij.org/public/files/c… Apologies in advance for getting all #ICJ on this. 👩🏻‍⚖️

I understand the political decision for making an application to the ICJ. This thread is in no way a judgment of that decision, which is very well founded in the terrible events of the last week especially.

Thread 🪡

Yesterday, @CIJ_ICJ handed down its judgment on the #maritimeboundary between #Somalia and #Kenya. This was the first judgment since the Court’s renewal in February 2021 and Judge Donoghue’s election as President (source of all images: @CIJ_ICJ). 👩🏻‍⚖️ Kenya did not appear at the oral proceedings before the ICJ after appearing at the preliminary objections phase (link to preliminary objections judgment below). However, the ICJ could rely on its written submissions, filed before deciding not to appear.
