    For whatever it is worth, I am very appreciative of these quick morning summaries of new Supreme Court cases. You provide just enough information to help me decide which ones to print out to read.

    Bond v. U.S. — later, on the merits, the treaty power must necessarily trump state power in view of the fact that the treaty power is expressly delegated to the federal government and is also expressly denied to the states — either one of which obviates the 10th Amend. vis a vis the treaty power. See free download of article (31 Suffolk Transnat’l L. Rev. 301, 318-24 (2008) at http://ssrn.com/abstract=1484842
    Next, Congress has the power to implement treaty-based and customary international law for criminal sanction purposes — see, e.g., U.S. v. Arjona, U.S. v. Haun, Missouri v. Holland, etc., addressed in casebook International Law and Litigation in the U.S. 251-72 (3 ed. 2009) (West, American Casebook Series).
