Welcome to the Jungle: The Application of Foreign Law in Aircraft Accident Litigation

Cantey Hanger partner, Bryan David, recently wrote an article about the choice of law.  Though his article focuses on how these rules apply to aircraft accident litigation, it discusses various choice of law standards employed in state and federal courts across the nation; the factors evaluated in the popular Restatement test; and, the practical considerations that often influence decisions regarding choice of law.  Mr. David’s article was published in SMU’s Journal of Air Law and Commerce in December, which may be found here – https://scholar.smu.edu/jalc/vol83/iss4/2/.
