ABSTRACT
The article reviews the Court of Appeals of Texas' decision in the case Porters & Clements, L.L.P. versus Stone. The Court of Appeals of Texas held that arbitration under the Texas Arbitration Act is binding and that the omission of the word 'binding' from an arbitration agreement does not make the agreement non-binding. The court further held that the Alternative Dispute Resolution which requires parties to stipulate in advance if they intend for arbitration to be binding, did not apply to this case because the Act only deals with court order referrals to ADR.
