John Quigley represented the European Union before the Supreme Court of the United States in cases relating to foreigners under sentence of death in the United States. He initiated petitions in the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights for such persons, and argued that same issue in the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
'Quigley's book is both impressive and deeply disturbing. It depicts the grim story of how access to consular assistance by foreigners facing the death penalty, increasingly recognized as a human right, continues to be depreciated by the US judiciary out of a mix of stubbornness, ignorance and arrogance.' Bruno Simma, former Co-Agent and Counsel for Germany in the LaGrand Case and Judge at the International Court of Justice 2003–12
