Ten Independence Day Items of Trivia About The Bald Eagle:
1.) Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson served on the committee that picked the eagle for the national seal [Franklin wanted the turkey].
4.) Bald eagles are not, and never were bald. The term comes from when "bald" meant "white-headed".
5.) Their maximum speed: 40 mph or over 100 mph while in a dive.
6.) They can lift roughly half their body weight.
7.) The Bald Eagle is no longer considered endangered, and now only threatened.
8.) The only other kind of eagle in North America is the golden eagle.
9.) Bald eagles mate for life, but if one dies, the survivor will accept a new mate.
10.) It is a felony to shoot an eagle.

Not all foreign countries are signatory to the Hague Convention. Service of process in Taiwan, for example, presents a completely different set of issues. In the absence of any treaty, service in Taiwan is governed by US rules and Taiwanese law. US rules must be met in order to commence the action in US court. At the same time, Taiwan rules should be strictly observed: Taiwan has indicated that it will not enforce any ensuing US judgment if service of the underlying action was not effected through its courts. In other words, it is possible to arrange for service by private agent in Taiwan pursuant to US rules only, but if the case is won, and a US money judgment is awarded, the judgment will be unenforceable in Taiwan because the original service is deficient under Taiwanese law.
The US company may well have litigated its case for nothing. How does a US company avoid this type of issue? It must seek issuance of an international judicial assistance request, or letter rogatory, and transmit it through diplomatic channels. A letter rogatory is a formal request from a US court seeking judicial assistance from a foreign court. US attorneys draft the letter rogatory, and then apply to the US court for its issuance. In the letter rogatory, the US court asks a foreign court to arrange for service on its behalf through a foreign judicial officer on the basis of reciprocity and international comity. Once issued, the letter rogatory is transmitted to the US State Department which sends it by diplomatic pouch (for a hefty transmission fee of $2,275) to the US embassy in-country, which presents it to the foreign government which in turn, assigns it to one of its courts for execution.
Accordingly, as a US company, you should always consult with a qualified attorney and process server with international litigation experience to obtain the best advice on how to proceed. Now with all that having been said....your all the better to litigate that international matter...IF YOU DARE!

[I disagree that the section that would have made it illegal for...(Illegal) immigrants to seek work in the USA was not upheld. I've traveled the world and lived in several other countries and I could not work in neither of them without first getting the appropriate permit or certificate, in some countries I had to keep a temporary resident permit on file with the local police department to even live there. People, I've said it again and again If I rob a bank and don't get caught until years later...doe it mean that I can keep the money and not be prosecuted for a crime; likewise, if I go on vacation or get deployed to fight for our country as I have in the past, come back to find someone living in my house...does it mean that since they were not discovered attempting to break in my home and arrested then that they get to continue living there and I have to support them? NO, this is not what happens, yet this is exactly what any Amnesty programs would amount to. This is the first time I recall being disappointed in Justice Thomas.] - M. Joseph Miller II.
that allows police officers to ask about immigration status during stops. That part of the law, which never went into effect because of court challenges, will now immediately be enforced in Arizona. Other parts of the law, including a provision that made it a state crime for illegal immigrants to seek work, will remain blocked. Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court's swing vote, wrote the opinion, and was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor. Conservative Justices Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas partially dissented, saying the entire law should have been upheld.
The Obama administration sued to block Arizona's law, called SB1070, shortly after it passed two years ago, saying it interfered with federal authority over immigration. The law made it a state crime for illegal immigrants to seek work or fail to carry proper immigration papers. It also requires police officers to check immigration status and make warrantless arrests for immigration crimes in some cases. A federal judge enjoined those aspects of the law before they were ever put into effect, but the law became a lightning rod around the country, sparking boycotts and counter-boycotts and opening up a debate about the nation's illegal immigrant population.
In oral arguments in April, many of the justices seemed deeply skeptical of the government's argument that it would interfere with its authority over immigration law if local police officers asked people about their immigration status during stops. Though much of the debate around the law has focused on "racial profiling"--whether Hispanic people would be stopped and questioned by police based on their ethnicity--the government did not even mention those words in their case against the law, instead focusing on the federal government's supremacy in immigration matters. Justices repeatedly criticized the government's argument against immigration checks. Even Sonia Sotomayor, part of the court's liberal wing, said she was "terribly confused" by the government's argument against the checks.
But the liberal justices showed much more hesitation over the parts of the law that made federal immigration crimes into state crimes, which have all now been struck down. Sotomayor singled out the state law against illegal immigrants seeking work, noting that Congress had explicitly rejected a similar law in their immigration legislation, instead choosing to target employers who hire unauthorized workers.
Five states followed Arizona's lead and passed similar laws last year, while similar bills failed in more than two dozen other state legislatures. The decision suggests that any state laws that make federal immigration offenses into state crimes will not stand. But it remains to be seen if the outcome will encourage more states to pass laws that make local police officers check immigration status. The law also became an issue in the presidential race, with Mitt Romney bringing on the law's author Kris Kobach as an immigration adviser, and embracing the law's purpose, "self deportation," as his immigration enforcement strategy.
In Arizona v. U.S., Justice Elena Kagan recused herself because she was solicitor general when the Obama administration filed suit against the law. If the court had split 4-4, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' decision blocking the four major provisions of the law would have stood.
