Abstract:

Francisco and Cruz discuss their opinions of the decision in Medellin v. Texas. Francisco holds that the President's order to honor the International Court judgment and the decisions in the cases leading up to Medellin v. Texas were in the strategic interests of the United States. As a result of earlier violations of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the Optional Protocol to the Vienna Convention, the International Court of Justice ruled that the United States had an obligation to abide by the decisions of the Court. However, recognizing the Optional Protocol reasoning would severely limit the ability of US courts with regard to foreign nationals. The case was ultimately decided by a presidential memorandum requiring the US to order the states to review convictions and sentences of foreign nationals in cases of violation of the Vienna Convention. Francisco discusses several possible solutions to resolve the courts problem and remain in compliance with US international obligations. Cruz holds that the President memorandum caused confusion because it ordered the state courts to obey the world court. The memorandum essentially acknowledged that the International Court of Justice was a superior court to the US Supreme Court.
