UN court rules against Italy's Nazi compensation claims

AMSTERDAM - The United Nations' highest court ruled on Friday that Italy's courts were wrong to allow victims of Nazi war crimes to claim compensation against Germany because it has legal immunity from being sued.
The ruling by the International Court of Justice in The Hague is expected to end a wave of claims for damages stemming from a Nazi massacre in Italy during World War Two, and will also prevent other countries such as Greece from using Italy's courts to pursue a flood of similar compensation claims.
