In DXP Enterprises, Inc. v. Goulds Pumps, Inc., filed in the United States District Court, Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, Judge Rosenthal was faced with the question of whether the court could dismiss a claim for permanent injunction in favor of arbitration. The parties, an industrial equipment dealer and a manufacturer of pumps, parts, and accessories agreed to an arbitration clause as part of a distributor agreement. The arbitration agreement allowed either party to seek equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction. The court holds that the claim for injunctive relief must be submitted to arbitration because, otherwise, the parties would litigate claims in court that they agreed would be determined in arbitration.
