What do you mean by "foreign judgment"?

Section 2(6) of the CPC defines a foreign judgment as a judgment of a foreign court. According to section 2(5) of the CPC, a foreign court is one that is located outside of India and was not constituted or perpetuated by the authority of the Central Government. For example, a British court would be considered a foreign court.

A foreign judgment may be enforced in India through the enforcement procedure prescribed under the Civil Procedure Code. This includes execution, attachment, garnishment, and declaration of its finality for purposes of recognition and enforcement.

The term "foreign judgment" is also used more generally to refer to any judgment from a foreign tribunal. The concept of "exterritoriality" allows courts in some countries to assert jurisdiction over parties who are not present within their borders. For example, a company may be required by law to submit an application for a business license to the local government before it can operate a casino in that country. If they fail to do so, they could be forced to close down their operation.

In addition, certain judgments entered by Indian tribunals are recognized as foreign judgments for purposes of enforcement in India. These include judgments of the Delhi High Court, the Mumbai High Court, the Punjab & Haryana High Court, the Telangana High Court, the Madras High Court, the Andhra Pradesh High Court and the Karnataka High Court.

What are foreign judgments in private international law?

In law, the enforcement of foreign judgments is the recognition and execution of judgments given in another ("foreign") jurisdiction in one jurisdiction. Foreign judgements can be acknowledged by bilateral or multilateral treaties or understandings, or they might be recognized unilaterally in the absence of an express international accord. The subject comes up most frequently in discussions of the recognition and enforcement of child custody decisions.

Foreign judgments are used to determine issues such as ownership, priority of claim, liability, and remedy with respect to certain rights and obligations. They may also be used to impose sanctions within the United States for violations of foreign laws.

Recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments involve a two-step process. First, a court must determine whether the judgment is valid under the law of the jurisdiction that issued it. If so, the court must proceed to the second step - which is not required by any pre-existing obligation of the United States - and execute the judgment.

The fact that a country has judgment enforcement laws does not necessarily mean that they will be used to execute judgments from other countries. For example, some countries refuse to enforce foreign judgments that do not include special provisions for enforcing the judgment in the foreign country's system of courts. Other factors may come into play, such as the nationality of the parties or the amount in question.

Are foreign judgments binding?

A foreign ruling is decisive in any dispute between the parties. Such a ruling is decisive and would establish Res Judicata between the same parties or between parties to whom they or some of the claims are assigned.

A foreign judgment is not enforceable in the United States, but it can be filed with the court that issued the judgment. If another country's court accepts the filing, the American judgment will have some effect in that country.

Generally speaking, a foreign judgment is not enforceable in the United States. However, it can be filed with the court that issued the judgment.

The filing of the foreign judgment is known as recognition. After recognition, the foreign judgment has the same effect as a judgment of the court that granted it. The party seeking recognition must show good faith by filing proof that the foreign jurisdiction's courts could exercise personal jurisdiction over the defendant. The defendant can then defend against recognition by showing that the foreign court did not have such jurisdiction. If the defendant does not contest recognition, the judgment is given full force and effect in the United States.

Recognition of a foreign judgment is done under the law of the forum state.

What makes a judgment a foreign judgment in Arizona?

A "foreign judgment" is described in Arizona Revised Statute SS 12-1701 as "any judgment, decree, or order of a court of the United States or of any other court which is entitled to full confidence and credit in this state." As a result, a judgment from an out-of-state court would be regarded a foreign judgment under this Act.

The basic requirements for characterizing an out-of-state judgment or order are that it must be (1) a judgment, decree or order, (2) by a court with jurisdiction over the parties and subject matter, and (3) it must be from a court with a system of courts capable of trying cases efficiently and effectively. The fact that the judgment was obtained in another state does not prevent its enforcement in Arizona if the requirements above are met. However, the Arizona Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, found at Arizona Revised Statutes Section 12-1702 et seq. , provides specific procedures for enforcing judgments from other states. This Act covers only judgments from other states; it does not apply to foreign judgments.

Enforcement of foreign judgments is generally easy once the requirements set forth in Article 17 of the Uniform Commercial Code are satisfied. To begin with, Section 12-1703 requires that a copy of the judgment be filed in the office of the clerk of the court where execution can be had. It also requires that a copy of the notice of intention to collect a foreign judgment be mailed to the defendant.
