This Note examines a Second Circuit decision that determined private, international arbitration proceedings do not qualify for the same discovery assistance as do foreign, governmental proceedings under 28 U.S.C. § 1782 ("§ 1782"). This Note will focus on the Second Circuit's controversial interpretation of § 1782 and its impact on the future of private, international arbitration.
