International Court of Justice Rules US Sanctions on Iran Are Illegal
 
The United Nations' highest court on Wednesday ordered the United States to lift sanctions on Iran that affect imports of humanitarian goods and products and services linked to civil aviation safety.
 
The ruling by the International Court of Justice is legally binding, but it remains to be seen if the administration of President Donald Trump will comply.
 
Of course Washington will not comply. 
 
The US government is a criminal organization that refuses to obey even its on laws

All unilateral US sanctions are illegal,based on the support of puppet states and others who are threatened and bullied.

The highest American court is the US Supreme Court, not the UN court.   The UN court has no political basis for existing as far as the US is concerned.   No UN court was ever authorized by the US Constitution and the US cannot recognize the court as valid.

As the UN is not a sovereign state, it has no "court" that any sovereign state would be required to recognize except by membership rule, but violating that court's order would not be illegal, it would only be a rule violation of a private club having limited membership.

A UN court would have the same legitimacy as a Disneyland Court or a Microsoft Court, which means the ruling is without legal authority or consequence.   It's like a baseball club setting up a court to rule on football.     Other countries may volunteer to comply with ICJ orders but the US is legally required to ignore them.

The issue for the US is whether the sanctions are illegal under the US Constitution or federal laws, and it could be argued that the Commerce Clause gives Congress the power to impose sanctions on other countries as a regulation of trade.    Whether that justifies sanctions for punishment unrelated to trade is another story.   I would say no, sanctions imposed must be related to trade issues, not foreign policy issues or political regime change.   Congress has no power to sanction nations for having unpleasant governments.
