Is that arbitration clause unfair? Ask the arbitrator.
Consumers may find it even more difficult to challenge arbitration clauses in the contracts they sign following a June 21 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court [PDF]. In a 5-4 ruling, the court upheld provisions in arbitration clauses that say that the arbitrators, not the courts, should settle complaints that the arbitration clause itself is unfair or unconscionable. The decision involved an employment discrimination case brought by a Nevada worker against his former employer, Rent-a-Center. The employee challenged the arbitration clause as being unconscionable under Nevada law. Because the clause had a provision empowering the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What is the implication of jurisdiction clause in cross-border ...
Each country handles jurisdictional issues differently from others. However, within the EU, each country's courts will (in most circumstances) acknowledge an exclusive jurisdiction clause giving another country's courts jurisdiction over a dispute, and therefore decline to exercise jurisdiction over a case. It's also possible to give non-exclusive jurisdiction, allowing potentially more than one court to have jurisdiction. Outside the EU, the position may be different. In any event, it's necessary to consider the legal and commercial issues on a case-by-case basis. In some cases it may not be in the ...
