Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
I am sorry for your situation. On this website, I do not always get to give good news, and I am afraid that this is one of these times.
If your contract
states that you must
arbitrate in Connecticut, then the arbitration state cannot be moved to CA unless the other side agrees to the relocation.
A clause spelling out the jurisdiction for a legal action, mediation, and/or arbitration is generally binding if included in such a contract, if it contains such limitations. Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. v. Intel Corp., 885 P. 2d 994 - Cal: Supreme Court 1994
So if the other party agrees (in writing) to relocate the arbitration to CA, then yes. However, if they do not, I am afraid that the matter for arbitration is placed in CT.
Please note: I aim to give you genuine
information and not necessarily to tell you only what you wish to hear. Please, rate me on the quality of my information and do not punish me for my honesty. I understand that hearing things less than optimal is not easy, and I empathize.
