Un pensamiento en “Trusts cannot refer their disputes to arbitration: Supreme Court

  1. I read the decision and I feel it is too bad it leaned on the side of prohibiting arbitration, though the law does not provide a clear out in terms of establishing that wills and trusts, while generally unilaterally drafted, are private instruments whose terms, conditions and law can be just as well ascertained by judge or expert arbitrator. Spain is a case in point with clear statutory law that cannot be ignored which, again, brings me to my point: so long as statutory law is not ignored, why not allow arbitration?
