In KenAmerican Resources, Inc. v. International Union, United Mine Workers of America, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit found that a corporation which did not sign an arbitration agreement entered into by an individual who owned both that company, KenAmerican Resources, Inc., and the company that was clearly bound to the arbitration agreement, Ohio Valley Resources, Inc., was not bound by the arbitration agreement. 2 This was because the agent who signed the agreement, Robert Murray, was not acting on KenAmerican's behalf.3
