The March 29th blog entry, Medellin, discussed the SCOTUS decision on Medellin v. Texas, while the August 10th entry, Updates, noted that José E. Medellín had subsequently been executed by lethal injection. Today, January 19th, the International Court of Justice ruled that the United States violated the court's March 2004 order when this was done. However, the court refused to interpret the order or to grant a Mexican government request that the U.S. provide guarantees that this would not occur again, stating that these were "issues between the Parties."
