In a legal battle over who should be held responsible for online racism, a court called Friday for a team of experts to examine ways of blocking French Internet users from U.S. portal Yahoo's auction site. A lawyer for Yahoo Inc. called the action reasonable. The case began in April, when two Paris-based human rights groups filed suit against Yahoo for hosting auctions of Nazi objects, including Nazi medallions, swastika-emblazoned battle flags and other Third Reich paraphernalia.
