  • expanded examination of the Alien Tort Statute, including excerpts and extensive notes on the impact of Sosa and subsequent decisions on human rights litigation
  • expanded, in-depth analysis of personal jurisdiction in international cases, including excerpts and discussion of the First Circuit's important decision in Swiss American Bank case, post-Asahi cases such as Roche Holdings, a jurisdictional veil-piercing decision in Telectronics, expanded treatment of "jurisdictional discovery," and a comparison of jurisdictional principles under federal law and EC Directive 44/2001
  • updated and comprehensive treatment of sovereign immunity law, including excerpts and discussions of retroactivity after Altmann, the immunity of sovereign-owned entities after Dole Foods, the D.C. Circuit's opinion concerning due process rights of foreign sovereigns in Price, further consideration of the definition of "commercial activity," and the UN Draft Convention on State Immunities
  • extensive treatment of recent developments concerning forum selection clauses and forum nonconveniens principles, including the new Hague Convention on Choice of Courts Agreements, excerpts and discussions of the Second Circuit's decisions in Iragorri and Wiwa, as well as the recent Lloyds of London litigation
  • updated analysis of the doctrine of lis pendens and antisuit injunctions, including the Fifth Circuit's recent decision in Kaepa and a comparison of these doctrines under federal law and EC Directive 44/2001

  • comprehensively revised treatment of the extraterritorial application of federal antitrust and securities laws, including excerpts and an in-depth discussion of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Hoffman-LaRoche and its impact on Hartford Fire
  • expanded discussion of choice of law principles in international cases, retaining the book's unique position of combining treatment of international litigation and conflicts issues
  • updated discussion of the act of state doctrine and the foreign sovereign compulsion doctrine
