AILC is an annual case law reporter that provides the full text of U.S. court opinions involving international law issues. The courts covered include all U.S. federal district courts, federal appellate courts, and the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as some state courts, the U.S. Court of Claims,the U.S. Court of International Trade, and the U.S. Tax Court. The series seeks to provide not every single case in which a court refers to international law but rather all cases that analyze at least one international law issue in depth. The list of subjects addressed by these volumes is vast and changes from year to year, with the inclusion and prominence of most topics turning on their prevalence in a given year's jurisprudence. Some consistently prominent topics are personal jurisdiction over foreign defendants, deportationprocedure, and double taxation. Over the last three editions (2006, 2007, and 2008), many topics have developed rapidly and constitute a correspondingly larger portion of the volumes, particularly Terrorism, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, Forum Non Conveniens, and an entirely new, addedtopic: the National Security Exception (to deportation eligibility). The 2008 edition of AILC also features expanded sections on family law and on the detention of terrorist suspects. The U.S. war on terror and the crisis at Guantanamo have made that last topic a significant and dynamic component ofAILC. Each edition of AILC also comes framed with two practical resources for students and scholars. The first is an introductory editor's note that both reviews international law's major developments for the given year and explains to readers how to use the volumes. The second is a subject indexto allow for targeted research. The cases in Volume Three of AILC cover procedural aspects, including jurisdictional questions, forum non conveniens, choice of law, and discovery. The issue in Capital Ventures International v. Republic of Argentina was whether the Republic of Argentina explicitly waived its sovereign immunity fromsuit in the United States as to claims relating to bonds issued by Argentina under German law. The court found that there was subject matter jurisdiction over the claims relating to the German bonds because Argentina explicitly waived its sovereign immunity to suit in United States courts on thoseclaims. In Aguas Lenders Recovery Group LLC v. Suez, S.A., Sociedad General de Aguas de Barcelona, S.A., Agua y Saneamientos Argentinos, S.A., the issue was whether, for the purposes of the doctrine of forum non conveniens, a non-signatory to an agreement may be bound by a forum selection clause andforum non conveniens waiver contained in contracts entered into by an entity alleged to be a predecessor in interest. The court held that such a non-signatory may be bound.
