Private International Law
This graduation paper is devoted to the issue of recognition of foreign judgments that do not require enforcement. The author deals with the scope and legal consequences of foreign judgment recognition apart from their enforcement. Further the author analyses the possibility of foreign judgment recognition outside of the without the specific recognition and enforcement procedure. For this purpose, the author examines relevant regulations adopted in the United States. Finally, the author shows the development of foreign judgment recognition in the Russian Federation and analyses various approaches to recognition of foreign judgments, in particular the theory of sufficient evidence. As the result, the author comes to the conclusion that introducing the rules for recognition of foreign judgments that do not require enforcement without the specific procedure could be considered the first move towards refusal from the theory of sufficient evidence, provided that the regulation is being further developed.
