Legislation amending Hawaiian law on franchising was filed last week and will be considered again this session by the Hawaii House of Representatives.  HB2192 would make pre-dispute forum selection clauses in franchise agreements voidable under Hawaiian law.  Currently, franchise provisions can require adjudication of disputes in out-of-state jurisdictions, thousands of miles away.  This makes judicial action to resolve disputes with a franchisor cost-prohibitive for many franchisees.
