Paper of the Day: Pribetić on “Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Canada”

Today’s paper of the day, by friend of Letters Blogatory Antonin Pribetić, of Himelfarb Proszanski and the The Trial Warrior blog, will be of interest to Letters Blogatory readers, and especially to those following the twists and turns of the Lago Agrio case. It’s titled Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Canada, and it’s based on a presentation Antonin is to give at the Ontario Bar Association Institute’s 2014 “Internationalizing Commercial Contracts” program. Here is the abstract:

This paper provides an overview of the governing conflict of laws principles for the recognition or enforcement of foreign judgments, including an analysis of the recent Court of Appeal for Ontario decision in Yaiguaje et al. v. Chevron Corporation et al. and its implications for the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments, generally. The issue of state immunity as an obstacle to foreign judgment enforcement is also considered.

The paper is available at SSRN.
