Abstract: It is shown that a norm-closed subtriple $ B$ of a $ J{B^ * }$-triple $ A$ is an inner ideal if and only if every bounded linear functional on $ B$ has a unique norm-preserving extension to a bounded linear functional on $ A$. It follows that the norm-closed subtriples $ B$ of a $ {C^ * }$-algebra $ A$ that enjoy this unique extension property are precisely those of the form $ e{A^{ * * }}f \cap A$ where $ (e,f)$ is a pair of centrally equivalent open projections in the $ {W^ * }$-envelope $ {A^{ * * }}$ of $ A$.
