An increasingly important part of international litigation has been transnational discovery that can be used in international and foreign tribunals. In the U.S., that discovery has been done through the use of section 1782 of the federal judicial code, title 28, under which US courts have the discretion to permit interested persons to obtain documents and take depositions under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure for use in foreign and international tribunals. As applications to federal courts have multiplied in recent years, courts have dealt with them in varying ways and on various legal bases, not all of them consistent with one another – and all of them affecting our clients in different ways.
Reed Smith partner Edward M. Mullins and Baker McKenzie of counsel Lawrence W. Newman, served as co-editors of the just-published Arbitration Law book, "Obtaining Evidence for Use in International Tribunals under 28 U.S.C. Section 1782." They, along with contributing authors, addressed topics relating to subjects such as statutory requirements rooted in personal jurisdiction, as well as possession and control under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, among other areas.
