ALEXANDER v. SUPERIOR COURT OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY (THE BRIX GROUP, INC.), H025443, H025471

To the extent a venue selection clause disrupts statutory venue provisions it is void as against the legislatively declared public policy fixing the place for trial. Accordingly, the trial court erred in determining that the contractual venue selection provision was dispositive of the question of venue.
