December 17, 2009

Axley Brynelson’s Distribution and Franchise Team publishes the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Case Law Update as an online resource for developments in the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law.

Midwest, LLC V. Trakloc International, LLC
Wisconsin Court of Appeals, December 17, 2009 App (Unpublished)

Facts: This matter handled procedural and substantive issues relating to forum selection clauses under the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law and the Wisconsin Franchise Investment Law.

Ruling: The Court found that the forum selection clause requiring venue in states other than Wisconsin was not unenforceable under the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law because the Court found that the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law was not applicable.

Bottom Line: The Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law has prohibitions against contracting around its requirements that affect both choice of law and forum selection clauses.
