Determining Whether Dispute Is Resolved by Court or Arbitration
Q: I’d like to make changes to the appearance of my shopping center, but under the lease with one of my tenants, the tenant has to give its consent to the changes before I can make them. I believe the changes won’t affect the tenant, so I think it’s being unreasonable by withholding its consent. Things are at a standstill. The tenant wants to arbitrate the issue, but I want to go to court to settle the matter. Who will prevail?
