Brewer Carías v. Venezuela

This case stems from the attempted coup of 2002 against President Hugo Chávez, and the prosecution by the State of a prominent constitutional law scholar for his alleged participation in the conspiracy. This is one of the rare cases in which the Court found it did not have jurisdiction. The victim had failed to exhaust domestic remedies.
