Irish Activists Acquitted

A few friends of mine from my Ireland days have just been acquitted in a three-year-old case. They damaged a US Navy jet in Ireland back in the spring of 2003. A Dublin jury found that they had lawful excuse to damage the plane, i.e. destroying the plane would hinder an illegal war (!) and therefore such destruction was not technically illegal . An amazing precedent (though legally it's probably not a precedent-setting case)...
