On Tuesday, the Supreme Court decided not to review a controversial case brought against Yahoo. The Internet giant came under fire with French officials when they allowed the listing of Nazi memoribilia, which is illegal to own in France, on their auction site. The French government wanted to fine Yahoo approximately $15 million.
In a drawn-out legal battle that ended at the U.S. Court of Appeals, no conclusive stance was taken on whether or not Yahoo had a duty to follow French law, though they were cleared of having to pay the fine.French officials then moved to try the case in the U.S. Supreme Court, but in a ruling on Tuesday the court said they would not hear the case. This would have been a landmark case, as it would have defined for sure whether U.S. courts can resolve international disputes of this nature.
