Forum Non Conveniens and the Enforcement of Arbitration Awards

The American Bar Association House of Delegates yesterday approved resolution 107C, which "affirms that the U.S. common law doctrine of forum non conveniens is not an appropriate basis for refusing to confirm or enforce arbitral awards" under the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards or the Inter-American Convention on International Commercial Arbitration.  The ABA Resolution states that invoking the doctrine of forum non conveniens for such arbitration awards is inconsistent with U.S. treaty obligations and federal implementing legislation.
