Noteworthy Article on Arbitration and the Judicial Assistance Statute

Kudos to Jenna Godfrey of American Univerity Law School on her new article, Americanization of Discovery: Why Statutory Interpretation Bars 28 U.S.C. § 1782(a)’s Application In Private International Arbitration Proceedings, 60 Am. U. L. Rev. 475 (2010), which has just been posted on Westlaw. Godfrey makes a sound argument that the foreign arbitral tribunals should not be considered “tribunals” for purposes of the judicial assistance statute–a point made on this blog a couple of weeks ago. Her article is worth a read.
