"Many contracts, whether or not related to hospitality, specifically delineate where a lawsuit or arbitration will occur if there's a dispute, and which law will govern the interpretation of the agreement.

The Supreme Court of the United States previously has recognized the ability of a party to designate an exclusive jurisdiction for any legal action, and this decision was recently reinforced by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. The judge dismissed a suit following a motion by the defendant, who argued that the case wasn't being tried in the contested contract's designated jurisdiction; the dismissal kept the case from going forward to discovery -- i.e., getting documents and taking depositions."
