It is proposed to start an occasional digest of important news concerning law, court affairs, and public policy with necessary links – on issues which could interest us, but which we could not discuss in detail due to lack of time. Readers/Contributors are requested to suggest any significant missing links/news, by emailing me. They are also welcome to offer their comments/analysis by using these links.
