3d DCA Watch -- I Like My Forum Selection Clauses to Be "Permissive" -- Very Permissive!


And I see I'm not alone:
The parties agree that the sole issue on appeal is whether the language of the forum selection clause in the Introducer Agreement is “permissive” or “mandatory.” We review this issue de novo.
Oh I bet you do!

Wait, this is starting to feel like a law school quiz:
Importantly, the parties agreed below (and maintain on appeal) that the language of the forum selection clause is unambiguous, leaving only a legal determination of whether this unambiguous language is mandatory or permissive.
Students, put down your pencils in one hour!

Oh, the FoxNews irony.
