Response to cascadiance (Reply #183)

184. I'm sure other countries wil go along with that!

How do we protect US citizen's and corporate investment with our trade partners? How can we assure those foreign investors are safe here in the US? Our courts? Silly wabbit.

Investment Chapter of TPP:

Investor-State Disputes

TPP investors will have the right to pursue neutral, international arbitration in the event of a dispute between an investor of a TPP Party and another TPP Party over a violation of one of the commitments of the Investment chapter. The chapter specifies these proceedings will be conducted in a transparent manner, with opportunities for public participation and safeguards to prevent abuse and help deter frivolous or otherwise non-meritorious claims. The safeguards include:
•Transparency of arbitral proceedings

Ensuring that arbitration hearings and documents are open and available to the public. For investor-State cases against the United States under TPP, all submissions, hearing transcripts, and other key documents will be available on the U.S. State Department website.

•Amicus curiae submissions

Ensuring that interested stakeholders, including labor unions, civil society organizations and other interested stakeholders, can submit amicus curiae or “friend of the court” briefs.

•Non-disputing party submissions

Ensuring that an investor’s home government and other TPP Parties are able to make submissions to panels on the interpretation of the Agreement.

•Expedited review of frivolous claims and possible award of attorneys’ fees

Ensuring, as under the U.S. Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, that panels are able, on an expedited basis, to review and dismiss frivolous claims and award costs and attorneys’ fees to the respondent government.

•Interim review and award challenges

Ensuring that disputing parties will be able to review and comment on proposed arbitral awards prior to their issuance, and to allow both disputing parties the option to challenge a tribunal award.

•Binding joint interpretations

Ensuring that TPP Parties, at any time, can agree on interpretations of the agreement that are binding on tribunals.

•Time limits

The time period during which an investor can bring an investor-State claim is limited to three and a half years from the date of actual or constructive knowledge of an alleged breach.

•Claimant waiver

To prevent “forum shopping,” a claimant pursuing a claim in investor-State arbitration must waive the right to initiate parallel proceedings in other fora challenging the same measures

Or we can go with "ISDS bad"! Lot fewer words...
