This article is about the Hague Evidence Convention' and the Supreme Court's decision in Aerospatiale.2 Because Of Aerospatiale, the Hague Evidence Convention is used only rarely for party discovery in United States litigation. That is unfortunate, and my purpose here is to suggest reasons and ways to revive use of the Convention. I will first discuss several aspects of the international discovery situation before Aerospatiale.
