There was a hope in some quarters after Judge Vanessa Baraitser ruled on Monday against an application to extradite Julian Assange to the US, where he faced being locked away for the rest of his life, that she might finally be changing tack.
Vanessa Baraister may enter the English Book of Guinness for illogic, inconsistency, incompetence, and bootlicking, Ron Ridenour writes.
Indeed, the ruling today was a huge relief for Assange, his family, and for all his supporters around the world. But it wasn’t justice.
The U.S. Labor Department guarantees privacy rights to corporations under investigation, a reasonable precaution not afforded to regular Americans, say Sarah Esther Lageson and Elizabeth Chiarello.
