BACKGROUND
In December 2009, television journalist Ilhamiyya Rza filed a lawsuit against Space Television and Radio Company for the “illegal invasion of privacy”. The Yasamal District Court dismissed the lawsuit on 18 January, 2010. The Appeals Court upheld this decision on 4 June, 2010. Then the Supreme Court annulled the decision issued by the Baku Appeals Court on 3 December, 2010, and sent the case back to the Appeals Court.
