I like the answer. It seems you know KY arbitration well. I have been bothered by the arbitration clause. I was trying to argue to go around arbitration because the other party committed fraud (in billing government healthcare). To be sure about this, I copied the original wording in the Agreement of my contract below. Also a sentence under Schedule of Conditions. Could you further clarify that for me. I really appreciate that. Furthermore, are you interested in answer questions related to the dispute of this matter?
In the main Purchase Agreement (item 8)
“In the event of any dispute, subsequent to the closing of this sale, between BUYER and SELLER under this Agreement, the parties agree to submit the matter to arbitration in accordance with the rule of the American Arbitration Association. Each party shall choose a single arbitrator and the two so chosen shall choose a third arbitrator. Either party may be represented by counsel. The decision of the arbitrators shall be final and conclusive and the right of appeal is hereby waved. BUYER shall not have the right to any Promissory Note(s) or balances owed hereunder”
In the Schedule of Condition of Purchase Agreement:
CHOICE OF LAW: This contract shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Kentucky, in the County of Jefferson.
Given the only two statements that may be related to arbitration, can we conclude that this arbitration clause cannot be enforced by court in KY because the clause fails to specified “arbitration to be held in KY”. Will the court more likely to throw out the arbitration clause and accept the case instead? Does the CHOICE OF LAW (in Schedule of Condition) imply the arbitration to be held in the Commonwealth of KY? Or it is just the opposite: The law requires clear statement in arbitration clause “to be held in KY”.
