Course Materials

What could go wrong with a joint venture between enormous subsidiaries of even bigger corporations involving millions of dollars, developing technology, and lots of lawyers?  The saga of the Exxon v. Saudi Arabian Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) is a tale of royalties, agreements, declaratory judgments, suits, countersuits, burden-shifting, foreign sovereign immunity, disputed federal jurisdiction and a battle of Sharia law experts.  In the center, Judge Jan R. Jurden, a Superior Court judge having to decide whether Delaware’s laws or Saudi Arabia’s laws applies.  Join Judge Jurden and some of the principals in this complex litigation to discuss the intricacies and fascinating twists that ultimately led this case all the way up to the Supreme Court.
