An Act To Clarify the Uniform Arbitration Act
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:
Sec. 1. 14 MRSA §5943, as enacted by PL 1967, c. 430, is amended to read:
§ 5943. Court, jurisdiction
The term "court" means the Superior Court or the District Court of this State. The making of an agreement described in section 5927 providing for arbitration in this State confers jurisdiction on the court to enforce the agreement under this chapter and to enter judgment on an award thereunder under the agreement.
This bill clarifies that the Uniform Arbitration Act confers jurisdiction in either the District Court or the Superior Court.
