The California Court of Appeals, in Fish IP Law, LLP v. Mei Tsang, No. G056201, opinion (Cal. App. Jan. 9, 2020), interpreted a “termination agreement,” stating that an existing partnership agreement was “void ab initio,” as meaning the partnership agreement never existed, precluding assertion of the partnership agreement’s arbitration clause for claims that accrued before execution of the termination agreement.
