Plaintiff contracted to furnish and defendant to exhibit a number of motion pictures. The contract included an arbitration agreement in which the parties agreed to submit all disputes arising under the contract to a specified board of arbitration and to abide by its award. The arbitration agreement was to be governed by the laws of New York, by which it would have been valid, irrevocable and specifically enforceable. Defendant breached the contract, refused to submit the dispute to arbitration, and failed to comply with the award when plaintiff did so. Plaintiff then brought suit in Ohio to enforce the award. Held, that the law of the forum governs matters of remedy, that the New York arbitration statute related to a matter of remedy and therefore could not be enforced in Ohio. Shafer v. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Distributing Corp. (Ohio, 1929) 172 N.E. 689.
