Civil Court lifts Judicial recess, blocks decree over La Rural grounds
A Civil Court decided to lift the judicial recess and also granted the cautionary measure requested by the Argentine Rural Society (SRA) that blocks the presidential decree over the expropriation of La Rural grounds in Palermo neighbourhood.
After an intense debate, court members Francisco de las Carreras, Ricardo Guarinoni and Graciela Medina decided to lift the traditional Judicial recess held in January, as they approved the measure presented by the SRA last Wednesday.
Simultaneously, the court accepted the National Government's request to set "celerity" to the treatment of the Media Law, which means that those controversial articles that hinder its application may be declared constitutional.
Last December 14, Judge Horacio Alfonso had ruled that the questioned articles were constitutional and had order to rule out the injunction presented by the Clarín Group, but the Civil Court ordered instead the extension of the injunction after Alfonso's ruling was appealed.
