Vinewood Capital v. Dar al-Maal al-Islami Trust (5th Cir. 2008): Arbitration Clause for Mudaraba Agreement

The Court considered questions of venue for a case related to Islamic financial instruments. The defendant, Dar al-Maal al-Islami Trust, petitioned the Court to compel the plaintiff, Vinewood Capital, to follow the arbitration clause of a profit-sharing (mudaraba) agreement. The Court determined that there was no single agreement listing both parties as signatories, and it thus refused to uphold the arbitration clause.
