March 2009
The chapter focuses on Section 1782 of Title 28 of the United States Code and international arbitration. It addresses the questions: "First, do international arbitration tribunals with a foreign situs constitute ‘foreign tribunals’ within the meaning of § 1782?.... Second, is § 1782 actually helpful to international arbitration?" The chapter also discusses the Intel Corp. v. Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. case and its impact on subsequent decisions regarding "foreign discoverability" requirements.
