Alabama Supreme Court Enforces Arbitration Agreement


Overruling a lower's court refusal to compel arbitration, the Court found that at will employment can be a satisfactory basis for an arbitration agreement, that the fact the employment has ended does is not a sufficient ground to avoid the arbitration and in determining whether or not interstate commerce is involved, and thus the FAA is applicable, the focus is on the scope of the employment not the dispute. Ameriquest Mortgage Co., Inc. v. Bentley, No. 1011791 (Ala. 11/27/2002).
