Following an assignment of shares, SHDA brought an action before a High Court with several claims. Consorts Y raised a jurisdictional plea for the benefit of the arbitral tribunal in accordance with the arbitration clause stipulated in the shares protocol. They objected the order of the pre-trial judge who stated that the state courts were competent. Consorts Y appealed the order and the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal for failure to hire a lawyer within a month as provided under the notice of a court clerk. The Cour de Cassation sets aside the decision arguing that this notice has not been sent to the parties.
