On October 10th, 2007, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the Medellin v. Texas case. The issue is whether state courts, on their own or by presidential directive, must follow an International Court of Justice decision that violates state law and contradicts a U.S. Supreme Court decision. In this episode of SCOTUScast, Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz, who argued the Medellin v. Texas case on behalf of the state of Texas, offers his own analysis of the case.
