AAR INT'L, INC. v. NIMELIAS ENTER. S.A., 00-2737

Where federal claims are distinct from and independent of other claims brought in a foreign forum, and the foreign action is therefore unlikely to dispose of them, the federal and foreign actions are not parallel and abstention by the federal court is improper.
