Hi, all

maybe it could make sense to add to the listed datasets (which i agree with)
the European Court of Justice data:

- http://curia.europa.eu/

<http://curia.europa.eu/>in order to cover the whole european legal data
environment from legislation under discussion to published legislation to
european court decisions.

As a short introduction to the list, I am a resercher at the Institute of
Legal Information Theory and Techniques of Italian National Research
Council. As our "core business" we deal with electronic legal information
management so I will be happy to be of help to the task of legal data cloud
construction if needed. Btw, I am a software engineer.

Kind regards,
