The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Bond v. U.S., which challenges the constitutional limits of the U.S. treaty powers. The case involves the government’s prosecution of a Pennsylvania woman under a federal law designed to ban chemical weapons. Microbiologist Carol Anne Bond was accused of poisoning her former best friend for having an affair with and becoming pregnant by her husband. Ms. Bond spread toxic chemicals on the woman’s car, home, and mailbox. Postal inspectors discovered the plot after they caught Ms. Bond on film stealing from the woman’s mailbox. Ms. Bond was eventually found guilty of violating an international chemical weapons treaty.

On June 2, 2014, the court ruled unanimously that an international chemical weapons treaty should not have been used to convict Ms. Bond. close
