In contract between P and D, there is a forum selection clause which reads "Venue for all disputes that may arise under this agreement or orders hereunder is the court of competent jurisdiction for Dallas, TX."
Assume that the federal court honors this clause as valid. Assume further that New York law provides that forum selection clauses of this kind are not to be enforced when both parties are New York residents (which they are, corporations), and choice is of a non-New York forum. Who should prevail?
You are already in federal court, and are given no information if there is a federal statute in conflict with this law or not.
WTF? Do I just pretend there is one and start analyzing? I was feeling good about civ pro till I took this old exam
