[en] In this short comment on a decision issued by the Commercial Court of Termonde, I offer some thoughts on the possibility for a business established in Belgium to seek protection in Belgium against discovery proceedings in which it is involved before a court in the US. In the case commented, the court refused the relief sought mainly because it found that enjoining the defendant would constitute undue influence in the proceedings pending in the US.
