Talk:Nicaragua v. United States/Archive 1

No dissent?[edit]

This article flagrantly violates NPOV by completely ignoring the views of the three dissenting Judges. In particular, one Judge wrote a dissent in excess of 260 pages, or twice the size of the majority opinion. None of this is mentioned at all. This is completely at odds with how other court cases are covered in Wikipedia, which almost always contain the views of both the majority and the dissent. CJK (talk) 22:47, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Actually, I don't agree that, regarding the length of the dissenting opinions as opposed to the length of the majority opinion, size matters. Terry Thorgaard (talk) 21:02, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

The court seems to have been uninterested in the large number of Cuba / Soviet advisors throughout Nicaragua that supported the FSLN murder and kidnapping campaigns during the latter part of the 1970's.71.243.209.181 (talk) 19:39, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

America and international law

Why the sheriff should follow the law

... Paul Reichler, a partner at the law firm Foley Hoag, a pre-eminent international-law firm. ...Mr Reichler is well placed to weigh in, as he also served as counsel for Nicaragua in a famous case against America in the mid-1980s when the superpower simply waved off an ICJ decision.

"Decisions, judgments and awards by international courts and tribunals are complied with in more than 95% of the cases, including by big powers such as the United States," Mr Reichler wrote back. In Nicaragua the US, he noted, had in fact complied with the court's order to stop mining Nicaragua's harbours, and while it had not officially complied with the order on reparations, the judgment helped prod Congress to cut off funding for the Contras. Furthermore, "the US has appeared in more ICJ cases than any other state. In all but two, it has fully complied with the ICJ's rulings, even when it has lost." (The other case in which America failed to comply was an ICJ ruling blocking the execution of a Mexican national in Texas; America's federal government accepted the ruling, but the state government of Texas ignored it.)
