Excerpt from “Introduction to the Restatement of the U.S. Law of International Commercial and Investor-State Arbitration at New York Arbitration Week”

Perhaps reflecting the concern that [28 U.S. Code] section 1782 discovery may be used to blow the doors open to full discovery, there were audience questions about the scope of its potential use. Associate Reporter Professor Jack Coe Jr., responded by emphasizing that the availability of section 1782 is in the court’s discretion and he highlighted that the Restatement offers a special “pride of place” to the consideration of whether the arbitral tribunal will be receptive to discovery, which may lead courts to pay special attention to the particularities of the specific arbitral matter at issue.
