Japanese Whalers vs. Sea Shepherd in U.S. court
Institute of Cetacean Research vs. Sea Shepherd in a U.S. Court
On October 9th, 2012 there was a hearing in the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court between the ICR – Institute of Cetacean Research and Sea Shepherd.
What is interesting is the challenge presented by the judges towards Sea Shepherd’s lawyer. The judges state the United States does not recognize Australia’s claim to a whale sanctuary in the Southern Ocean. Below is a link to the audio of that hearing around 37 minutes long. It is very compelling and interesting to listen to.
