5th Circuit Finds Arbitrability Questions Must Be Decided By Arbitrators

(August 11, 2017, 1:04 PM EDT) -- NEW ORLEANS — A panel of the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Aug. 9 affirmed a decision in favor of Chevron USA Inc. and others to deny a motion to remand a company’s claims for fraud, finding that the court did not err in finding that a confidentiality agreement’s arbitration provision required that the question of arbitrability must be decided by arbitrators (Brittania-U Nigeria Limited v. Chevron USA, Inc., et al., No. 16-20690, 5th Cir., 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 14692).
