has abstract
  • Reid v. Covert, 354 U.S. 1 (1957), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that American civilians outside of the territorial jurisdiction of the United States cannot be tried by U.S. military tribunal, but instead retain the protections guaranteed by the United States Constitution, in this case, trial by jury. Although the plurality opinion stated that "this Court has regularly and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty," the case itself was with regard to an executive agreement, not a "treaty" in the U.S. legal sense, and the agreement itself between the United States and Great Britain has never been ruled unconstitutional.
