A police officer asks the Stop Evictions platform organizers and journalists to move further away from the Spanish parliament before a press conference in the street, in Madrid, Spain, Thursday March 14, 2013. The European Court of Justice in Luxembourg has ruled Thursday March 14, that harsh property repossession laws in Spain violate EU laws on consumer protection. Hundreds of thousands of evictions have taken place during Spain’s deep recession, but the watershed ruling said Spanish legislation infringes EU law as it does not allow courts to halt eviction orders on the basis of possible unfair terms in mortgage agreements.(AP Photo/Paul White)
