Magi XXI, Inc. v. Stato della Citta del Vaticano, 12-568

Judgment of the district court dismissing defendant, the Vatican State, in suit brought by plaintiff, a sublicensee, regarding an agreement allowing reproductions of the Vatican library collection, is affirmed, where the Vatican State may invoke the forum selection clauses in the sublicense agreements because the licensee and the Vatican State were "closely related" parties and it was foreseeable that the Vatican State would enforce the forum selection clauses.
