> Hi folks!
>
> This month one mexican federal court generated an interesting case law
> related to use of Wikipedia as source of knowledge on trials, specially in
> law resolutions. The tribunal that solved this was the "Tribunal Federal de
> Justicia Fiscal y Administrativa". This court is not the supreme court of
> Mexico but is the most important tribunal after that one in all the matter
> related to tax and administrative law and its precedents are binding for
> all mexican administrative authorities and al the judges on administrative
> and fiscal law.
>
> The case law is the number VII-J-SS-191 and you can read it in the next
> link:
>
> (only in Spanish)

> The title is at the same time a brief of the content of the precedent, and
> it can be translated in this way:
>
> *"Wikipedia".- The information that is obtained from this website can help
> to elucidate some controversial matter, thence the courtrooms of this
> tribunal may use it when ruling.*
>
> Inside the text the court makes a fair clarication: "*It must not be the
> only source of knowledge in which the resolutions are based on [...] the
> judges must care about gathering diversity of sources of information such
> as specialized books, encyclopedia, including the electronic ones, [...]
> and others*."
>
> Maybe is just a curiosity, but for me is ilustrative of the good
> reputation that our work is getting even in some closed circles as the law
> practice. At least in Mexico is not common to see a court quoting
> Wikipedia, but maybe this first precedent might change the things.
>
> Do you know other similar case laws?

> Regards!
