ABSTRACT
The article discusses a court case decision regarding a construction contract in New York. The New York Court of Appeals affirmed an order compelling the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York to arbitrate, under the auspices of the AAA, claims arising out of a construction contract between the Authority and a private contractor. The court held further that the state itself was not insulated against the operation of an arbitration clause in a contract, for the power to contract implies power to assent to the settlement of disputes by means of arbitration.
