Mora v. McNamara, 389 U.S. 934 (1967), is a case in which the United States Supreme Court was asked to rule on the case of a conscientious objector (a member of the Fort Hood Three) who claimed that the U.S. war against Vietnam was an illegal war of aggression. In this case, the court cited only the Kellogg-Briand Pact, Article 39 of the United Nations Charter and the Treaty of London (which established the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal) as the relevant body of international law regarding cases of war.
Certiorari was denied.
