Japan Probe: "New Jersey Japanese School Wins Takeshima Lawsuit"

A lawsuit brought against a Japanese School in New Jersey for teaching that Takeshima (Dokdo) is Japanese territory has been dismissed. A Korean-American who did not like the school's using a Japanese Social Studies textbook that taught Takeshima (Dokdo) was Japanese territory filed a lawsuit against the school last year. You can read more about the lawsuit in English at "Japan Probe" HERE.

In the footnotes of her legal decision, the Judge wrote the following:
As a former civil mediator, it would certainly be tempting to suggest that this historic Asian-Pacific dispute, which apparently remains the cause of wide-ranging emotions and politics on both sides, be settled through a designation of one islet to each country. Clearly, if the solution were that simple, it would have occurred before today.
