Ausländisches Recht im deutschen und englischen Zivilprozess by Thomas Rogoz

By Thomas Rogoz

Das deutsche Internationale Privatrecht lässt ausländische Rechtsordnungen großzügig zur Anwendung kommen. In Kombination mit der fortschreitenden Globalisierung führt dies dazu, dass deutsche Zivilgerichte ihren Urteilen zunehmend ausländisches Recht zugrunde legen müssen.
Thomas Rogoz beleuchtet in der vorliegenden Monographie zunächst, welchen dogmatischen Schwierigkeiten deutsche Richter hierbei ausgesetzt sind: Einerseits soll ausländisches Recht nicht hinter inländischem Recht zurückstehen. Und so ist der Richter nicht nur dafür verantwortlich, dass ausländisches Recht zur Anwendung kommt, sondern auch dafür, dass es richtig ermittelt wird. Er steht additionally vor dem challenge, wie französisches Erbrecht, türkisches Scheidungsfolgerecht oder japanisches Vertragsrecht richtig anzuwenden sind. Andererseits liegt auf der Hand, dass iura novit curia schon angesichts der Sprachbarriere keine Geltung beanspruchen kann. Der rechtsvergleichende Blick nach England zeigt, dass dogmatische Schwierigkeiten kaum aufkommen, wenn guy ausländisches Recht als Tatsache ansieht. Dort obliegt es den Parteien, ausländisches Recht darzulegen und zu beweisen. Andernfalls entscheidet das Gericht nach common law.
Abschließend gibt Thomas Rogoz dem Leser anhand der aktuellen Rechtsprechung praktische Lösungen an die Hand, wie der Inhalt ausländischen Rechts in den Prozess eingeführt werden kann. Dabei legt er sein besonderes Augenmerk auf den Sachverständigenbeweis. Der Vergleich mit England offenbart die Schwächen und Stärken dieses Beweismittels.

Gestaltungsakte im internationalen Rechtsverkehr: Zur by Panajotta Lakkis

By Panajotta Lakkis

Panajotta Lakkis widerlegt die seit jeher bestehende Annahme, es bestünde eine prozessuale Gestaltungswirkung, die inter omnes gelte. Hat guy bisher die inter omnes-Wirkung ungeprüft zu Grunde gelegt und sich nur mit den Folgeproblemen befasst, namentlich mit der Problematik des rechtlichen Gehörs, geht die Autorin den umgekehrten Weg und hinterfragt die Prämisse. Sie zeigt, dass es gar keine eigenständige prozessuale Gestaltungswirkung gibt, sondern dass die einzige maßgebliche prozessuale Bindungswirkung auch der Gestaltungsurteile die materielle Rechtskraft ist. Dies bedeutet auch, dass die subjektiven Grenzen der Bindung an ein Gestaltungsurteil nur von der materiellen Rechtskraft bestimmt werden. Die Hauptargumentation für die bisherige Annahme einer inter omnes-Wirkung, dass nämlich begriffsnotwendig eine Gestaltung entweder erfolgt sein kann oder eben nicht, wird an Hand der Parallele zur 'einfachen' materiellrechtlichen Gestaltung mit anschließender rechtskräftiger Feststellung widerlegt. Nachdem die dogmatische foundation gesetzt ist, geht die Autorin zur Betrachtung anderer hoheitlicher Gestaltungsakte über und sieht darin ihre those von der Maßgeblichkeit der materiellen Rechtskraft bestätigt. In einem zweiten Teil wird dann die Problematik auch im grenzüberschreitenden Rechtsverkehr dargestellt. Abschließend findet sich eine ausführliche Zusammenfassung, die die Möglichkeit gibt, sich in komprimierter shape mit der those vertraut zu machen.
