Proskauer on International Litigation and Arbitration:
Managing, Resolving, and Avoiding Cross-Border Business or Regulatory Disputes
- This Chapter provides an overview of some of the methods available for taking evidence in the U.S. in aid of a non-U.S. proceeding, including the provision of evidence on a voluntary basis, and compelling evidence through the use of diplomatic channels. The bulk of this Chapter, starting at Section VI, discusses requests for discovery made pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1782, which allows litigants or other interested persons involved in international proceedings to make a request directly to a federal district court for an order compelling discovery from a person or entity that resides or is found in the district in which the court sits.
