Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a suit by a Bulgarian construction company against a Bulgarian-American bank claiming predatory lending practices, brought after the same parties settled a suit brought by the bank against the construction company for breach of contract in Bulgaria, dismissal of the suit on forum non conveniens grounds is affirmed as, not only was the court well within its discretion, but correct as a matter of common sense in concluding that Bulgaria was an available, adequate forum to resolve the dispute over a Bulgarian loan contract and balanced all of the relevant private and public interest factors, which strongly favored Bulgaria as the more convenient forum.
