Case Issue:

Petitioner appeals the circuit court’s order denying its motion to compel arbitration and to dismiss. Petitioner and respondents are parties to an oil and gas lease that contains an arbitration clause. The circuit court found the clause ambiguous on the basis that two other provisions in the lease contain the phrases “court of competent jurisdiction” and “civil action.”
