comment Has a foreign power ever sought to compel another country to abide by international law by means of that country's internal judiciary?
@Gangus, your first point is a very good one and I had not considered that. Your second point doesn't make much sense to me since the legal principles I'm referring to have a long historical tradition tracing back to Dutch theorist Hugo Grotius.

@Gangus the question asks if one country filed suit against another country in their courts. I don't know how that can be any more clear. I have already explained the relevant principles of international law that explain why the answer is no.

I guess my major hang up is this part of the question "Have there been any instances where the first country filed a suit in the courts of the other to make it abide by the treaty?" So, that is why I want to see one country suing another country in that court.

@Gangus, can you provide some sort of link as evidence? I'm having difficulty figuring out how that would look in a court system. The evidence doesn't have to be in English, I'll take the time to figure out how to translate it if need be.

Gangus, in your example the dispute is between Lockheed (a private company) and the French government.

I would love to see you provide an actual example in the form of "France v. United States" filed in US courts. Or something similar. Maritime salvage cases are the only thing I can think of close to this, and even there I believe they are filed in an international body.
