There are many decisions highlighted on these pages ordering the enforcement of forum selection clauses. A recent transcript ruling is notable for granting expedited proceedings, without ruling on the merits, for a plaintiff who sought to enforce a forum selection clause even though the plaintiff was not a signatory to the agreement with the forum selection clause.
The plaintiff in this case is a law firm seeking to enforce a forum selection clause in a release and settlement agreement that released the attorneys of the signatory. See Dentons US LLP, v. Platt, C.A. No. 2019-0177-MTZ, transcript (Del. Ch. March 20, 2019). Regular readers are aware that transcript rulings may be cited in Delaware briefs.
