Appeal Dismissed: English Courts on Foreign Judgments

Appeal Dismissed: English Courts on Foreign Judgments Case note considering a recent Court of Appeal authority regarding a claim brought in England by an Ethiopian party who was displeased with the outcome of litigation in Ethiopia. The Appellants were alleging that they had not received a fair trial in Ethiopia. The Court of Appeal have firmly stated that the English courts will not act as a supranational appellate court to decisions made in other jurisdictions. The case reaffirms the principle of comity within private international law and helps delineate the boundaries regarding cases brought in England and Wales which have no connection with the jurisdiction. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png African Journal of International and Comparative Law Edinburgh University Press
