Contract – Shareholder Agreements – Arbitration – Motion to Compel – Fraud (access required)

Ellison v. Alexander. Even though defendant did not sign plaintiffs' shareholder agreements with The Elevator Channel, since he made the representations about which plaintiffs complain while he was convincing them to invest in The Elevator Channel, he made those representations as an agent of The Elevator Channel. The plaintiffs' claims are inextricably entwined with the provisions of their shareholders agreements, so the defendant is entitled to enforce the arbitration clause in the shareholders agreements. Therefore, the trial court's order denying the defendant's motion to compel arbitration is reversed and the matter is remanded to the trial court for the entry of an order staying all further proceedings and requiring the parties to proceed to arbitration.
