It is true, of course, that if Hartzell and Piper were found liable after a trial in the United States, they could institute an action for indemnity or contribution against these parties in Scotland. Showing That the Range Is Critical Applicants can rebut a prima facie case of obviousness by showing the criticality of the range. Respondent sought to recover from petitioners on the basis of negligence or strict liability not recognized by Scottish law , and admitted that the action was filed in the United States because its laws regarding liability, capacity to sue, and damages are more favorable to respondent's position than those of Scotland. If substantial weight were given to the possibility of an unfavorable change in law, however, dismissal might be barred even where trial in the chosen forum was plainly inconvenient, and the forum non conveniens doctrine would become virtually useless.

Showing That the Prior Art Teaches Away A prima facie case of obviousness may also be rebutted by showing that the art, in any material respect, teaches away from the claimed invention. The pilot and all of the decedents' heirs and next of kin were Scottish subjects and citizens, and the investigation of the accident was conducted by British authorities. Such an approach not only would be inconsistent with the purpose of the forum non conveniens doctrine, but also would pose substantial practical problems, requiring that trial courts determine complex problems in conflict of laws and comparative law, and increasing the flow into American courts of litigation by foreign plaintiffs against American manufacturers.

Belton then pleaded guilty to a lesser included offense, but preserved his claim that the cocaine had been seized in violation of the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments.
Of course, if the remedy provided by the alternative forum is so clearly inadequate or unsatisfactory that it is no remedy at all, the unfavorable change in law may be given substantial weight; the district court may conclude that dismissal would not be in the interests of justice. These facts demonstrate that at the time Belton and his three companions were placed under custodial arrest -- which was after they had been removed from the car patted down, and separated -- none of them could have reached the jackets that had been left on the back seat of the car.
