        THE FOREIGN RELATIONS LAW OF THE

                             UNITED STATES 3D



  Generally

  Cal.App.2018. Cit. generally in disc. and in ftn. Creditor sought recognition of a Russian judgment
  under the Uniform Foreign-Country Money Judgments Act against debtor. The trial court granted
  summary judgment for debtor. Reversing and remanding, this court held, among other things, that, under
  the Restatement Third of Foreign Relations Law, non-recognition of the Russian judgment was not
  warranted on grounds of lack of notice, because the means of service employed by the Russian court
  comported with due-process requirements. In making its decision, the court noted that §§ 481 and 482 of
  the Restatement, which covered the recognition of foreign judgments, closely tracked the provisions in
  the 1962 Uniform Foreign-Country Money Judgments Act, and that California had adopted the 1962
  version of the Act and later adopted the updated 2005 version of the Act. AO Alpha-Bank v. Yakovlev,
  230 Cal.Rptr.3d 214, 221.



                        PART II. PERSONS IN INTERNATIONAL LAW

                                     CHAPTER 1. STATES

  § 201. State Defined

  Ala.2017. Quot. in sup. Patron of a casino owned by Native American tribe brought a lawsuit against
  casino, tribe, and several other defendants, alleging that casino deprived plaintiff of gambling winnings.
  The trial court granted defendants' motion to dismiss, finding that tribe's court had exclusive subject-
  matter jurisdiction over any claim within their territory. This court affirmed, holding, inter-alia, that
  Alabama had no subject-matter jurisdiction, because a Native American tribe had the right to regulate
  internal matters on its own territory when it was not overridden by federal legislature. The court quoted
  Restatement Third of Foreign Relations Law § 201 to illustrate the legal doctrine of sovereign immunity,
  explaining that a state's sovereignty included physical territory and a permanent population. Rape v.
  Poarch Band of Creek Indians, 250 So.3d 547, 554.



         SUBCHAPTER D. STATES AND INDIVIDUAL OR CORPORATE NATIONALITY

  § 211. Nationality of Individuals

  C.A.11, 2018. Cit. in disc.; com. (c) cit. and quot. in disc.; com. (h) quot. in disc. Foreign owners of
  Venezuelan company that operated as part of a state-owned network of distributors for the
  petrochemical industry brought an action under the expropriation exception of the Foreign Sovereign
  Immunities Act (FSIA) against Venezuela and its state-owned business, alleging that Venezuela initiated
