Here's more judicial news. It involves booze too, lolol.

Top court ruling on disclosure no surprise in light of censorship of its own expenses

"Over four years through 1999, the court purchased 1,386 beer coupons and 77 sake coupons with a total value of nearly 1.2 million yen, repeatedly giving them to institutions such as Narita Airport Authority and Tokyo Station as gifts. It also presented the coupons to judicial press clubs, the Metropolitan Police Department and a police station in Bunkyo Ward on various occasions."

Like what the heck is going on? I've heard of buying a judge but never of a judge buying a plantiff!
