Civil Judgment Recognition and the Integration of Multiple-State Associations
Central America, The United States of America, and the European Community
Robert C. Casad
This book represents a prodigious study of judgment-recognition practices in the Central American states, and is for that reason alone an important and needed contribution to comparative law. Distinguished legal scholar Robert C. Casad details the history and present arrangements in Central America, compares the Central American system to interstate judgment-recognition arrangements in the U.S. and the European Economic Community, and considers important suggestions for reform in Central America.
This book brings together for the first time in one source, translated into English, the texts of the relevant code provisions of each of the six Central American countries, as well as the text of the Bustamante Code (the multi-lateral treaty) and the European Economic Community judgment-recognition convention.
“A fascinating study in the comparison of economic integration and recognition of judgments. The book’s special value to practitioners is in its discussion of the process of enforcing foreign judgments in Central America.”

“Professor Casad brings his expertise to bear on the meaning and operation of legal concepts which have seldom if ever been discussed in a comparative fashion. This is the kind of study that can be of great help both to Central American students of law and legal process and to U.S. scholars involved in the process of inter-American legal developments. It also has practical value for any U.S. or Central American lawyer trying to enforce a foreign judgment in Central America.”
