Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
heh and coincidentally*, Bradwell v. The State, 83 U.S. 16 Wall. 130 130 (1872)
"It is to be remembered that at the time this statute was enacted we had, by express provision, adopted the common law of England, and, with three exceptions, the statutes of that country passed prior to the fourth year of James the First, so far as they were applicable to our condition."
Some here may still be amazed how often this sentiment recurs in US American common law and restatements. Orders of magnitude greater by contrast to cursory acknowledgement, if any, to "international law." US-UK do. not. do. international law, 'k?

*I was looking for something else, Harris vs. Quinn (2014), an event that had me quite out of joint at the time, into Taft-Hartley, and RAYGUN (1981). So it goes, the hand-wringing, too little, too late.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
