Last November the ICJ decided over the maritime dispute between Nicaragua and Colombia. The decision was not one-sided but did grant Nicaragua some of the territory that Colombia had claimed. Since the decision, Colombia's president Juan Manuel Santos has had a hissy fit. For example, after the decision, Colombia decided to withdraw from the court's jurisdiction.
The dispute escalated when Nicaragua decided to actually use some of that territory. In particular, start petroleum exploration. (Note that Costa Rica is also having a smaller hissy fit about this.)
