We can do better, right?
I ran across this sentence in a document one of my students found on the Internet:
- IF YOU INITIATE SUCH LITIGATION, YOU AGREE TO PAY ALL LEGAL FEES AND COSTS IN CONNECTION WITH SAID LEGAL MATTER, AND FURTHER AGREE THAT THE STATE OF TEXAS WILL HAVE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF ALL LEGAL MATTERS.
How about this?
- You agree that you can sue us only in Texas, and if you sue us, you must pay all the legal fees and costs of the litigation.
"said legal matter"?
