LIFECO SERVICES CORPORATION v. SUPERIOR COURT
California Sixth District Court of Appeal, 1990
Mr. Braden represented an employer facing a lawsuit by employees claiming that the employer had breached an employment contract. The contract in question contained a forum selection clause calling for any lawsuits brought under the contract to occur in Texas. The Court of Appeal held that the employer’s actions in seeking emergency relief in California courts against the employee action did not prevent the employer from enforcing the forum selection clause as written. The Court issued a writ in favor of the employer.
