Suppose you are a U.S. company that manufactures a product that is partially or completely manufactured by a Chinese company. And suppose that your company is sued in a United States District Court and the plaintiffs (or you) believe that discovery from the Chinese manufacturer is relevant to the lawsuit. Can you require the non-party Chinese company to provide this needed evidence, or are you simply out of luck? This article outlines some of the issues and difficulties involved when seeking discovery from a non-party company based in China and offers a practical suggestion for enhancing your ability to do so in future cases.
