The Austrian government has seized the house where Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler was born. But the former owner of the house has challenged it and pulled the state to the constitutional court.
The European Court of Justice has ruled in favor of Markus Achatzi, who sued his company for extra pay for working on Good Friday. In Austria, only members of four churches get the Christian holy day as a public holiday.
The previous owner of Adolf Hitler's birth home in Braunau am Inn is seeking more than a million euros in compensation payment for the building. Austria seized the property last year and intends to tear it down.
The European Court of Justice ruled against a 2015 regulation that saw Austria give minimal social assistance to refugees. Austria's conservative government has introduced a number of strict immigration cuts recently.
Judges on Germany's highest court unanimously threw out legal complaints brought by the AfD. They said far-right lawmakers failed to show how Merkel's 2015 decision to let in refugees was a constitutional violation.
