Summary

The “star” of this course is Aguinda v. Chevron, a case that commenced in 1993 in New York and continued through the courts of Ecuador, Brazil. Argentina, Canada, The Netherlands, and Gibraltar. Its long and tortured history - including multiple arbitration proceedings in The Hague and 23 discovery requests in federal courts in 10 states of the United States - provides a foundation for learning about the United States Alien Tort Claims Act, the United States Racketeer and Corrupt Organizations Act, Third-Party Litigation Financing, American Discovery, Bilateral Investment Treaties, and Extraterritorial Application of Law. -Asynchronous Distance Learning
