Italian Court Rejects PM Immunity Law
Italy's top court has partially rejected a law that extended criminal prosecution immunity to Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi while he is in office.
The decision by the Constitutional Court on Thursday allows individual judges to decide whether Berlusconi can be forced to face trial or not.
The judges can decide whether or not to accept excuses by the prime minister or members of his cabinet that they are unable to attend trials due to conflicts with official duties.'
