are the linked language pages really the same thing?[edit]

I took a look at the German page and also one other (I don't remember which) using Google translate and they seem to be talking about appeals, not legal remedies. Does anybody check these links? --TachyonJack (talk) 22:38, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


The maxim 'for every right, there is a remedy; where there is no remedy, there is no right', at least the essence of it, actually predates Blackstone - in 1703 Holt CJ stated wherever there is a right a remedy must be found in Ashby v White (1703) KB at 953, so maybe the idea should be attributed to him? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:07, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Removal of globalize template[edit]

There was a globalize template on the article, in the section on American remedies, not the top of the article. I removed it. The introduction seems to apply to any country that uses common law. When there is a separate section for a particular country and nothing stopping editors from adding additional sections for other countries, which I encourage, how does the globalize template apply? I do not know the intent of the person who placed the template, but in my opinion, a lack of information is not necessarily a case of bias. This is my opinion on how the globalize template should be used and may not be the consensus. -- Kjkolb (talk) 17:58, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

I don't want to wade in on the use of templates, but I'd note that the so-called American remedies discussed in the section previously named Legal Remedies in American law are identical with the remedies available at common law; certainly in Canada, and I suspect in other Commonwealth jurisdictions. I've changed American to Common Law for that reason. -- PatrickR (talk) 00:00, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
