forum sovereign law...

      Forum sovereign law would be the law of the district court of New York.
This comes into play by virtue of the decision in Swift.  Swift held that
federal courts exercising jurisdiction on the grounds of diversity need not
apply the common law of a state but are free to exercise their independent
judgment as to what the common law of the state should be based on matters of
general jurisprudence.
