is there a california state law that requires arbitration procedure to be conducted in california and not anywhere else?
is there no way to move arbitration procedure to california from connecticut, if the franchisor does not agree to it? rumors are that all arbitrators are indirectly bought out by the franchisor because of the frequency of arbitration proceedings and in order to continue to earn those big fees, 99% of time arbitrators always rule in favor of the franchisor. the franchisor is a HUGE corporation with over 25000 franchisees in US and international arena.
a local california attorney is telling us that there is a state law in california that requires arbitration in this state and not elsewhere and she is "VERY CONFIDENT" according to her but we have not proceeded with her services yet. how do you feel about this local attorney's response?
thanks ely. will research more and get back to you if need further clarification.
