Justices debate international law on TV

I sure wish I could have heard this debate. I read a ruling by SCOTUS where Justice O'Connor cited international law for the basis of her vote. I don't remember what the vote was on but at the time all I could think was and people say that judges of the left aren't activist? What does international law have to do with the US?

Excerpt:
Justice Antonin Scalia on Thursday chastised the "arrogance" of U.S. judges who seek to decide politically charged questions involving gay rights and the death penalty by citing international law.

Update: This is replaying on C-Span today (Sat. 1/15) at 5:30 CST.
