Default LWOP Cruel and Inhuman says European Court of Human Rights

http://www.guardian.co.uk/law/2013/j...h-human-rights

Whole-life jail sentences without any prospect of release amount to inhuman and degrading treatment of prisoners, the European court of human rights has ruled.

Law blogs I read say this might have implications for extradition of US fugitives if they face LWOP terms.
