Discussion on the Possibility and Necessity of Transnational Effect of State Court’s Decisions

V.V. Terekhov,
Master of Law (LL.M.), Lecturer of the Department of Civil 
and Arbitration Procedure of the Omsk State University


In the present article the author deals with existing approaches towards the status of foreign courts’ acts within the national legal order and the necessity of their recognition. It is noted that there is no uniform opinion concerning the existence of a state’s obligation to recognize judgments of foreign public jurisdictions, which is mainly conditioned by the concept of «state sovereignty», predominant in science and in practice. At the same time there is an ongoing reappraisal of that idea under the influence of the new social, economic and political conditions, and nowadays the process of recognition is broadening in its scope, covering new types of judicial acts, and is being subject to liberalization, providing for simpler ways for the transition of foreign judicial decisions into the national legal order. At the same time the nature of the process, as well as its direction and intrinsic logic are still explored insufficiently. Moreover the question concerning the necessary position of the government towards foreign judicial acts and their status in the national legal order remains undetermined. The current article attempts to highlight the most important problems of the mentioned discussion and propose some possible ways of their solution. 

Keywords: territorial effect of judgment; recognition and enforcement; territorial limits of legal force; transnational legal certainty; foreign judgment.
