FILE - This June 28, 2012 file photo shows people waiting in line to hear cases at the Supreme Court in Washington, Thursday, June 28, 2012. A unanimous Supreme Court ruled Monday that prosecutors may not rely on an international chemical weapons treaty to convict a woman who attacked her husband's mistress. The justices threw out the conviction of Carol Anne Bond of Lansdale, Pa., who was prosecuted under a 1999 law based on the chemical weapons treaty. Bond served a six-year prison term after being convicted of using toxic chemicals that caused a thumb burn on a friend who had become her husband's lover. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
