Weeks (“Legal Representative” and [Greenwood Health and Rehabilitation Center](“Facility”)(“Facility” includes the particular facility where the Resident resides, its parents, affiliates, and subsidiary companies, owners, officers, directors, medical directors, employees, successors, assigns, agents, attorney and insurers.).” Apparently he contended he did not see it or read it, but the court determined a party is bound by his contract nonetheless. Citing the Federal arbitration Act, the court granted Defendant’s motion to compel arbitration.
