U.S. Chamber argues Washington Supreme Court should honor forum selection clauses

November 17, 2015

In its brief, the U.S. Chamber supported a petition for review in the Supreme Court of the State of Washington asking that court to review a lower court’s decision declining to apply a forum selection clause in an employment contract. The Chamber’s memorandum argues that the Washington Court of Appeals misapplied well-established Washington law concerning the treatment of allegations when analyzing the application of a forum selection clause.

Robert M. McKenna and Andrew R. Ardinger of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center.
