An Alabama federal judge on Friday rejected a union-backed lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the North American Free Trade Agreement, leaving intact the process by which the U.S. government has pursued thousands of foreign pacts over the past four decades. But the judge also indicated his surprise that the legal question at the core of this lawsuit--when must an international agreement be adopted as a treaty?--had not been directly addressed by the highest court in the land.
