Fordham Conference on International Arbitration and Mediation – Does 28 U.S.C. § 1782 Apply to Private International Arbitrations? A Mock U.S. Supreme Court Argument
28 U.S.C. § 1782 permits federal courts to order discovery “for use in a proceeding in a foreign or international tribunal.” The question for international arbitration practitioners is whether discovery under this statute applies to private international commercial arbitrations. Three federal circuits – the Second, Fifth and Seventh Circuits – have held that the phrase “foreign or international tribunal” in section 1782 does not include arbitral bodies established by private parties. Two federal circuits — the Fourth and Sixth Circuits – have interpreted section 1782 to apply to private commercial international arbitrations. This circuit split makes the issue ripe for U.S. Supreme Court consideration.

The Fordham International Arbitration and Mediation Conference will present a mock U.S. Supreme Court argument in which counsel and a panel of judges will consider the legal question of whether a private international commercial arbitration is “a foreign or international tribunal” within the meaning of section 1782. After the oral argument, we will invite the participants in the mock argument to comment of what arguments may be most persuasive before the U.S. Supreme Court as well as respond to audience questions.
