The District Court dismissed the action, in part on forum non conveniens grounds, and the Eleventh Circuit reversed. The court held that controlling Supreme Court case law required the District Court to consider the application of the forum-selection clause in the agreement. The court of appeals remanded to the District Court to determine whether the forum-selection clause was enforceable in this case.
