I want to sue my franchisor, and don't want to go to arbitration.

Can you sue your franchisor without having to go to arbitration first?  Many franchise agreements do have mandatory arbitration clauses, however state law will dictate which state governs, and which laws are not subject to arbitration. Additionally the franchise agreement itself will have exceptions for the issues that may be arbitrated. Although you may believe your rights best lay with litigation, it is always prudent to have an experienced franchise attorney first look at both your agreement, the state's laws where both the franchisor and the franchisee are located, as well as the registration documents for both states compared to what you received. This will give the full picture of the available remedies based on potential state law violations, which happen more often that not, and will determine potential remedies and options that you may not know even exist. Franchise law is highly regulated and if your Franchise Disclosure Document was deficient in any manner (and many are) then you have more options. Have a franchise expert review your situation before deciding on a course of action.
