Moot Court with Top Justices

CK - Washington.   Five justices of the Supreme Court in Civil Matters, Bundesgerichtshof, in Karlsruhe, Germany will judge the national moot court competition conducted by the European Law Students' Assocation, the court announced today. The teams competing on March 7, 2008 will be from law schools at Leipzig and Kiel.

The court's press release describes the dispute as one involving the sale--through an agent bestowed with a notarized power of attorney--of riparian real estate with attached fishing rights and encumbered by upstream milling rights. The purchaser wants the first, opposes the second and demands that the mill, chartered in 1817 as a corn mill and now operating as a power station, cease operations interfering with the fishing rights or that the purchase be rescinded.
