Professor Paul Stephan on Sanchez Llamas/Bustillo

by Julian Ku

Not to distract from the Hamdan case (and note Peter’s and Geoff’s useful comments below), on which I have plenty to say (but not just now), I am pleased to share with Opinio Juris readers the thoughts of Professor Paul Stephan of UVA Law School, who submitted an amicus brief in favor of Virginia and Oregon in Sanchez-Llamas/Bustillo, the ICJ case the Court released yesterday. Professor Stephan posted these thoughts on an international law in domestic courts listserve and I republish them below (also, check out Professor Stephan’s important observation about Hamdan at the end of his comments) (Updated with a correction I mistakenly left off).
