Highlight

A broadly-worded agreement in one contract can require arbitration of disputes arising under related contracts.
To determine whether an arbitration provision in one agreement should be applied to other agreements, in addition to the relationship between two or more agreements and their subject matter, courts consider whether the parties to the separate agreements are identical, whether the underlying agreements were executed closely in time, and the breadth of the language used in the arbitration clause.
The question whether a particular dispute is arbitrable usually is for judicial determination unless the parties agree otherwise.
A party may waive the jury trial right by signing an agreement to arbitrate or by binding itself to arbitration as a nonsignatory through traditional principles of contract or agency law.
