ICJ: Jurisdiction and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters (Belgium v. Switzerland)
The International Court of Justice has extended the time-limits for briefing in the case brought by the Kingdom of Belgium against the Swiss Confederation on "Jurisdiction and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters."
Belgium's memorial is now due by November 23, 2010. Switzerland's reply is due by October 24, 2011. More information about the case can be found on the ICJ's website.
Written memorials are generally confidential until the ICJ makes them accessible to the public, which generally happens at the opening of the oral proceedings. So don't look to find these briefs until 2012!
