Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a contract case involving two separate agreements involving the applicability of an arbitration clause in the latter of the two agreements, dismissal of the case is affirmed where: 1) res judicata bars consideration of the arbitrability issue as a state court already reached that issue and resolved it with sufficient finality; and 2) a finding of improper venue was proper as only the district court in the particular forum of the forum selection clause can issue an order compelling arbitration.
