Summary

The Sixth Edition updates Professor Weintraub's much cited and quoted comments on the conflict of laws. The discussion integrates how European Union regulations, the Japanese code, and other foreign laws, deal with the same issues. International commercial transaction have become commonplace. Many injuries and deaths have their causes or their victims abroad. It is therefore imperative that the course in conflict of law include study of how foreign countries treat the course's major topics of judicial jurisdiction, choice of law, and recognition and enforcement of judgments. A Hague convention controls service of process abroad.. The sanction for not effecting service in accordance with the convention is dismissal of the action. There is detailed commentary on current issues, including the Class Action Fairness Act; the constitutionality of an amendment to a state constitution barring same-sex marriage; the Italian torpedo; and libel tourism, or as it is referred to in the states that have enacted statutes to protect against it, libel terrorism. Also included is a summary and evaluation of law and economics literature on choice of law.
