City of Westfield v. Harris & Assocs. Painting, Inc., 567 F. Supp. 2d 252 (D. Mass. 2008)
In this case, the Federal District Court for the District of Massachusetts allowed a contractor’s motion to compel arbitration and remanded the case to arbitration despite the fact that the contractor failed to register as a foreign corporation with the Massachusetts Secretary of State as required by M.G.L. c. 30, § 39L.
