Pau Court of Appeal, 23 October 2017, C. H. v. F. E. and BDM, no. 16/02562

The arbitration clause contained in the articles of association covering the disputes between shareholders or between a shareholder and the company is inapplicable if the invoking party is no longer considered a shareholder [under French law, the arbitral tribunal has always jurisdiction unless the clause that underlies its jurisdiction is void or inapplicable].
