Legal Adaptation among Vietnamese Refugees in the United States: How International Migrants Litigate Civil Grievances during the Resettlement Process.
Hein, Jeremy; Beger, Randall R.
International Migration Review, v35 n2 p420-48 Sum 2001
Examines how Vietnamese refugees use the American legal system to address grievances arising during resettlement and how resettlement affects the pace of their legal adaptation. Data from state and federal civil cases involving Vietnamese litigants indicate that several aspects of Vietnamese litigation match their resettlement process, such as civil rights and intraethnic litigation occurring later than other types of cases.
