By Peter Barnett

The Preclusive Effects of Foreign Judgments in Private International Law

Reviews:

'The preclusive effect of foreign judgments in international law is a veritable minefield for lawyers. But given the exponential rise in transnational litigation in recent years, it is a subject which more and more practitioners are having to come to grips with. This book promises to be a formidable weapon in the armoury of such practitioners. ... attempts to unravel many of the mysteries surrounding this branch of the law.' - Journal of the Commonwealth Lawyers' Association 2001

'The series of Oxford monographs in private international law is producing some innovative titles, frequently in areas that have not been covered previously in texts of such depth. Dr Barnett's work is a welcome addition to the series, and is in many ways groundbreaking. ... deals with the complex questions which arise when the doctrines of res judicata and abuse of process are applied to foreign judgements. It will be a valuable addition to the library of the international commercial lawyer.' - New Law Journal, 15 Feb 2002

'This is another excellent contribution to the Oxford Monographs in Private International Law. The academic community of private international lawyers, not to mention those in the real world of legal practice and judges, owe a debt of gratitude to Peter Carter QC for taking the initiative to found this series and to edit it. this is a very thoroughly researched book on a difficult topic that adds to our knowledge of the effects of foreign judgments.' - Law Quarterly Review, 1 Apr 2002

'a welcome addition to the [Oxford monographs in private international law] series, and ... in many ways ground breaking ... It will be a valuable addition to the library of the international commercial lawyer.' - Gavin McFarlane, New Law Journal, February 2002

Description:

  • A clear and original work that makes sense of the complex and technical doctrines of res judicata and abuse of process, as applied to foreign judgments - an area of law that has been frequently confused and misapplied
  • An area of increasing importance for practitioners and academics - especially those interested in international commercial litigation
  • While focusing on the English law and Brussels and Lugano Conventions, it also includes useful references to res judicata case law in Australia and Canada
  • Detailed examinations of the Brussels and Lugano Conventions
  • Discussion of the proposed Hague Convention on Jurisdiction and Foreign Judgments in civil and commercial matters

This clear and original book provides a much-needed analysis of the doctrines of res judicata and abuse of process as applied to foreign judgments recognized in England for their preclusive effect. In particular, it examines the four preclusive pleas which are encountered in practice, namely: (i) cause of action estoppel; (ii) issue estoppel; (iii) former recovery per section 34 of the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982; and (iv) the rule in Henderson v Henderson . So far as foreign judgments are concerned, the book examines separately the preclusive effects of foreign judgments recognized according to the English common law and related statutory rules, and foreign judgments which the English courts are obliged to recognize under the Brussels and Lugano Conventions. It also includes a discussion of the preclusive effects of judgments recognized under the proposed Hague Convention on Jurisdiction and Foreign Judgments in civil and commercial matters.

Although the complex and technical doctrines of res judicata and abuse of process are well known in the context of domestic judicial decisions, little has hitherto been written analysing how these doctrines apply when the judgment emanates from a foreign court. It is not surprising, therefore, that this area of law has been frequently confused and mis-applied. And yet the recognition of foreign judgments for preclusive purposes is an increasingly important area for practitioners and academics - especially for those interested in international commercial litigation, and not least given the important treaty developments that are occurring. For these reasons, this book is a very timely work. Written with a practitioner focus, it includes extensive references to res judicata authorities in the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.
