Stevens, Souter, Breyer
O'Connor dissented from the Court's per curiam decision to dismiss certiorari as improvidently granted, arguing that the Court's dismissal was based on speculation as to what the state court might do. O'Connor preferred to remand the case with instructions to consider whether the decision of the ICJ was binding on American courts, and to what extent the Convention created enforceable rights that could not be forfeited through procedural default.
