Unformatted text preview: the claim against KFC preceded the agreements to arbitrate, the claim was made after Beauregard signed the agreements. 14 We reverse and remand with directions to the lower court to enter an order compelling arbitration of Beauregard's negligent hiring claim against KFC. REVERSED AND REMANDED. HARRIS, J. concurs. GRIFFIN, C.J., dissents, with opinion. DISSENTBY: GRIFFIN DISSENT: GRIFFIN, J., dissenting. I respectfully dissent because, in my view, the lower court correctly ruled that the arbitration provisions contained in the KFC form employment application did not require arbitration of a personal injury claim that arose one year before she [**5] [*632] signed the application. Nor, for that matter, do I believe the arbitration clause applies to the personal injury claim. In order for such an adhesion provision to be valid, it must be clear. This one is not. I would affirm the lower court's denial of the motion to compel arbitration. 15 Case # 4 PAUL v. HOLBROOK & PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL PRODUCTS MEREDITH A. PAUL, Appellant, v.
