November 2020 – On Friday, November 20th, Caline Mouawad participated in a mock Supreme Court argument on the question “Does 28 U.S.C. § 1782 Apply to Private International Commercial Arbitrations?,” hosted by Fordham University School of Law. During the mock argument, counsel and an esteemed panel of judges considered the legal question of whether a private international commercial arbitration is “a foreign or international tribunal” within the meaning of section 1782. In addition, the participants commented on what arguments may be most persuasive before the U.S. Supreme Court. This mock argument could not be more timely – on Monday, Servotronics, Inc. filed a petition seeking Supreme Court review of this very issue.
A recording of the Mock U.S. Supreme Court argument featuring Caline is available here. The mock argument was one of three sessions hosted by the Fordham Conference on International Arbitration and Mediation. Recordings of the other sessions are available here.
The program was part of New York Arbitration Week, which offers a variety of programming aimed at showcasing New York as a leading global seat for international arbitration and center for thought leadership. Chaffetz Lindsey is a sponsor of New York Arbitration Week
