The August, 2001 issue of the International Bar Association (IBA) Committee 12 (Civil Litigation) newsletter contains three articles with links to Phillips Nizer Benjamin Krim & Ballon LLP. Professor Jonathan Bush's speech about Telford Taylor at the April litigation lunch is the subject of an essay by litigator, David Jacoby. The firm's victory in Alnwick v. European Micro Holdings, Inc., 99 Civ. 7380 (ADS) (E.D.N.Y. March 22, 2001), which attorneys Stuart Summit and Michael Fischman handled in Federal District Court for the Eastern District of New York, is the subject of a Current Topics article by Mr. Jacoby. The decision made new law in permitting a suit in which essentially both sides of the caption were American nevertheless to be referred to Dutch courts on forum non conveniens grounds. Mr. Jacoby also prepared a report on a program on contingent fees which was held at the Amsterdam conference. Mr. Jacoby edits the IBA Committee 12 newsletter.
