Council Approves
Amicus Curiae Brief on
Taiwan Treaty
By mail ballot, the Section's Council (17 for; 3
against; 5 not voting) approved the submission of a re-
quest to the ABA Board of Governors to approve an
amicus curiae brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in the
Taiwan Treaty termination case (Goldwater et ai. v.
Carter et al.).
This brief would have taken the two following main
positions, which have been advanced in the amicus
brief filed in the Court of Appeals, by the Georgetown
University Law Center, Don Wallace, Jr. and Leonard
J. Theberge.
1. That, under principles of international law ap-
plicable in United States courts, the Mutual De-
fense Treaty Between the United States of
America and Taiwan became inoperative upon
the U.S. withdrawal of recognition from and
severance of diplomatic relations with the
governmental authorities on Taiwan; and,
2. That the President of the United States had
authority, without congressional approval, to
acknowledge that a treaty which was previously
ratified with the advice and consent of the Sen-
ate has become inoperative under principles of
international law applicable in the U.S. courts.
