International Conflict of Law: Online Aspects, Part Four


Review enforcement issues.

In most countries, the primary means for enforcing a domestic court judgment in a foreign country is the Hague Convention.Because the U.S. has never ratified the Hague Convention requiring domestic enforcement of foreign court judgments, enforcement of judgments originating from courts within the U.S. “whether the courts of a foreign country would enforce a judgment issued by a court in the United States depends upon the internal laws of the foreign country and international comity. This white paper discusses why in many foreign countries, as in most jurisdictions in the United States, the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments is governed by local domestic law and the principles of comity, reciprocity and res judicata.
