Double Renvoi Law and Legal Definition

Double renvoi is a form of renvoi whereby, parity of result is ensured by the forum court. The forum court resolves the issues in the same manner as a foreign court selected by its choice of law rules might resolve it. Double renvoi is enforced by the forum court when no other relevant law is specified to resolve the dispute. In this scenario, the forum court considers that it is sitting as the foreign court and will decide the matter as the foreign court would. In this system, there can never be more than two remissions. Double renvoi is known as the foreign courts doctrine. I t is also known as multiple renvoi. [Dellamarggio v. B-Line, LLC (In re Barker), 306 B.R. 339 (Bankr. E.D. Cal. 2004)].
