Prof. Simona Grossi (Loyola Los Angeles) has posted on SSRN a draft of her article, Forum Non Conveniens as a Jurisdictional Doctrine. Here’s the abstract:
In Forum Non Conveniens as a Jurisdictional Doctrine, I reconsider the doctrine of forum non conveniens from a jurisdictional perspective and, by so doing, challenge the current approach to and understanding of that doctrine. As a solution, I offer a novel, statutory-based framework designed to ameliorate an array of problems generated by the currently accepted model.
