Comparing Australian and American federal jurisprudence
Despite important similarities between the Australian and U.S. constitutions, the influence of differences in politics, history, and context is evident in judicial interpretation. Australia’s High Court, for example, has rejected Baker v. Carr “one person, one vote reasoning” and has no entanglement doctrine in its religious establishment jurisprudence.
 
How a former Sony chairman erased an article based on his Sony hack e-mails
