Aban Offshore Llimited v. Beacon Maritime, Inc.

Appellee's Brief


Officers of a corporate entity that signed an arbitration agreement have been sued personally and seek to avoid arbitration on the grounds that they did sign the arbitration agreement in their individual capacities. The trial court ordered them to arbitrate on the grounds that the officers are bound to the arbitration provision by virtue of their alleged conduct as agents of the corporate signatory. The nonsignatory agents appealed. There are only a few cases involving this fact pattern.
