MADRID, Feb 3 (Reuters) - A Spanish high court has ruled in favour of a man who was fined for walking naked through the streets of a town in the region of Valencia and later tried to attend a court hearing in the nude.

In a statement, the region's high court said it had struck down an appeal against a lower court decision to annul fines handed out to the man for being naked in the streets of Aldaia, a town on the outskirts of the regional capital.

The court, however, acknowledged a "legal vacuum" in Spanish law regarding public nudity.

Alejandro Colomar, 29, was filmed arriving at court wearing just a pair of hiking boots before being ordered to put more clothes on to enter the building.

At his trial, he argued that the fines infringed on his right to ideological freedom.

Anyone can walk naked down a street without being arrested, but some regions such as Valladolid and Barcelona have introduced their own laws to regulate nudism, especially away from the beach. »

BOSTON - Researchers at Boston University on Monday reported finding CTE in 345 of the 376 former NFL players they have studied so far.

The school's CTE center said the 91.7% occurrence rate of CTE in ex-NFL players is a sharp contrast with the "extremely low population rate" of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in the general public.

The researchers caution that there are selection biases in the brain bank used for the study, and people shouldn't assume that nearly 92% of all current and former NFL players have CTE. »
