Inetianbor v. Cashcall, Inc., et al., No. 13-13822 (11th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff filed suit against CashCall, which then sought to compel arbitration based on the parties' loan agreement. The district court refused to compel arbitration and CashCall appealed. The court held CashCall to the terms of the integral forum selection provision included in plaintiff's loan agreement. Because the selected forum - the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Nation - is unavailable, a substitute arbitrator under 9 U.S.C. 5 cannot be appointed under the terms of the contract. Accordingly, the court affirmed the district court's order deciding not to compel arbitration.
