The Paquete Habana by Horace Gray

Paquete Habana.; The Lola, 175 U.S. 677 (1900), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case that reversed an earlier court decision allowing the capture of fishing vessels under prize law. Its importance rests on the fact that it integrated customary international law with American law, perhaps the quintessential position of those who hold a monist perspective of international law.
