Bordeaux Court of Appeal, 11 October 2017, Mme G. D. and La SNC Pharmacie Des Chartrons v. M. J. A, no. 15/01715

The refusal of a party to appoint an arbitrator in accordance with the terms of the arbitration clause contained in the articles of association does not mean that the clause is inapplicable [under French law, the arbitral tribunal has always jurisdiction unless the clause that underlies its jurisdiction is void or inapplicable].
