#23-256 Lockton Companies v. Superior Court, S282136. (B328408; nonpublished opinion; Los Angeles County Superior Court; 22STCV39876.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal denied a petition for writ of mandate. The court ordered briefing deferred pending decision in EpicentRx, Inc. v. Superior Court, S282521 (#23-247), which presents the following issue: Is a forum selection clause enforceable when a party’s right under California state law to a jury trial for their civil claims would not apply in the exclusive forum identified by the clause?

Petition for review granted; briefing deferred: 12/13/2023
