An important but little noticed Supreme Court decision this month: BOND v. UNITED STATES

In an attempted murder case, Bond was tried on the grounds that she had violated a federal Act implementing a chemical weapons treaty ratified by the United States instead of trying her under state law. She brought a Tenth Amendment claim that the Federal action usurped state law. While the Supreme Court did not take a stand on the merits of Bond's challenge, the unanimous court said that it was surely within her rights to sue over this over this possible overreaching by the federal government.
