Forum non conveniens revisited - a strong stance on international comity
Singapore | 29 February 2012

The High Court recently ruled on an appeal against a decision of the assistant registrar to refuse to stay an admiralty action between foreign parties arising from a collision between foreign vessels of different nationalities. The decision shows a willingness to apply the doctrine of international comity and dismisses the argument that being subject to a lower limitation fund constitutes a juridical or personal disadvantage.
