The Supreme Court stepped back from a major dispute over international law Monday when it dismissed from its docket a case in which the World Court had ordered new hearings for Mexican nationals on death row in Texas.

The World Court, officially the International Court of Justice, last year ordered the new hearings in U.S. courts for Ernesto Medellin and 50 other Mexican nationals because, at the time of their arrests, local police had not informed them of their rights to seek help from Mexican consulates, in violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. Medellin was sentenced to death for participating in the murder and rape of two girls in 1993.
