Limitation of Actions

Author: David W. Oughton
Publisher: Informa Law
ISBN: STANFORD:36105060369415
Release Date: 1998-01-01
Genre: Law

This work is an analysis of the law relating to limitation of actions. The authors have approached this work by setting out general matters such as the relationship between statutes of limitation and equitable principles on the matter of delay in instituting proceedings the generalities of accrual of a cause of action and the relationship between limitation periods and rules of pleading and procedures. The bulk of the text sets out the particular difficulties encountered in particular areas of civil litigation. For these purposes it includes specific sections on contracts and commercial law, tort, restitutionary claims and actions in respect of real and personal property. While these four broad areas cover the majority of limitation issues, the problem with the subject generally is that there is such a diverse range of statutory limitation periods that there are some limitations upon a legal remedy which do not readily fall into the four categories referred to above and are dealt with separately. Finally, it analyses the issues arising from the burgeoning case law on the matter of prevention, extension and postponement of limitation periods

English summary: This 'liber amicorum' for Peter Schlosser contains contributions written by internationally well-known specialists in the field of international civil procedure and arbitration. The articles concentrate on controversial issues such as transborder cooperation, international jurisdiction, enforcement of foreign judgements and arbitral awards, especially in regard to European legislation and international conventions. They focus on very delicate subject matters such as neutrality of arbitrators, taking evidence abroad and the limits of national sovereignty. German description: Die hier gesammelten Beitrage sind zwei wesentlichen Arbeitsgebieten des Jubilars gewidmet, dem internationalen Verfahrensrecht und der Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Aus diesen Bereichen werden aktuelle und grundsatzliche Probleme von weltweit anerkannten Spezialisten diskutiert. Im Vordergrund stehen die Probleme grenzuberschreitender Sachverhalte bei der Rechtsdurchsetzung, sei es im Bereich der staatlichen Gerichtsbarkeit, sei es in der alternativen Streitbeilegung, insbesondere der internationalen Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Die Thematik gewinnt durch die Europaische Rechtsetzungskompetenz und Gesetzgebung neben den internationalen Konventionen, insbesondere den Bemuhungen der Haager Konferenz um einheitliche Regelungen fur transnationale Probleme, neue Dimensionen. Themen wie der neue Europaische Vollstreckungstitel uber unbestrittene Forderungen, die besonderen Probleme der Brussel II a-Verordnung, der Entwurf eines Haager Ubereinkommens uber die Gerichtsstandswahl stehen neben Grundsatzfragen wie Armut der Schiedspartei, Neutralitat des Schiedsrichters, Anerkennungsproblemen bei einer Scheidung nach judischem Recht und Fragen aus dem Bereich des europaisch-amerikanischen Justizkonflikts. Die Beitrage spiegeln die internationale Diskussion in aktuellen und sensiblen Bereichen des internationalen Verfahrensrechts im weitesten Sinne.
