Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     35-8A-12.   Waiver of rights void--Mutually binding agreements or voluntary dispute settlements not prohibited. Any waiver of the rights or remedies granted by this chapter is void. However, nothing in this chapter limits or prohibits suppliers and wholesalers from entering into mutually binding written agreements as defined in this chapter or to limit or prohibit good faith dispute settlements voluntarily entered into by the parties. However, no provision of any written agreement may purport to require the law of any state other than South Dakota to govern the relationship of the parties or to require wholesalers to waive the right to have disputes with their suppliers resolved in courts of competent jurisdiction in South Dakota or to require a wholesaler to waive the right to trial by jury in South Dakota.
