An international concept of due process arises out of Florida

Opinio Juris, one of the treasure troves of the internet and a blog that I read frequently and have great respect for, acknowledged a very important case the other day in which a federal court in Florida decided to refuse to enforce a $97 million judgment in the case of Osorio v. Dole Food Company.

The case is of particular importance for lawyers like me who work in countries where rule of law is more a wish than a reality.

Highly recommended reading here.
