Calls in the experts

A French anti-rascist groups are suing Yahoo! over what it calls illegal auctions of Nazi paraphernalia. According to Reuters Judge Jean-Jacques Gomez has set a date of 6 November for a new hearing to give the experts two months to come up with a way of blocking the US based sites.

The International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism, and the Union of French Jewish Students have launched the complaints.
