against Davis and others, alleging negligence.

Assignment 2: Case Analysis

The Case

answer the questions presented and incorporate theories and concepts from this week’s

material.

Thomas Baker and others who bought new homes from Osborne Development Corp.

sued for multiple defects in the houses they purchased. When Osborne sold the homes,

it paid for them to be in a new home warranty program administered by Home Buyers

Warranty (HBW). When the Company enrolled a home with HBW, Osborne paid a fee

and filled out a form that stated the following: “By signing below, you acknowledge that

you CONSENT TO THE TERMS OF THESE DOCUMENTS INCLUDING THE

BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION contained therein. HBW then issued warranty

booklets to the new homeowners that stated: “Any and all claims disputes and

controversies by or between the Homeowner, the Builder, the Warrant Insurer and/or

HBW shall be submitted to arbitration.”[ LS311 | Business Law ]

the builder, Osborne, in court?

In responding to the question be sure to:

• Discuss what courts are saying about the enforcement of arbitration

clauses in contracts.
