Reports on the Medellin argument

The Medellin case in the Supreme Court is turning out to be less about the death penalty and more about separation of powers, federalism and what might be called super-federalism (i.e., US obligations with respect to international law).  Nevertheless, it still is making for great drama and theater, as documented by this post about today’s oral argument from SCOTUSblog and this AP report.  In addition, Emily Bazelon has this discussion of the case at Slate and Tony Mauro provides this report at law.com.
