SDM Wins Appeal in Dispute Over Waiver of Arbitration Rights

Steve McConnico, Robyn Hargrove, and Kim Bueno recently won an appeal in a dispute over waiver of arbitration rights.  At the trial court, the plaintiff sought to compel arbitration after the trial court issued some adverse pretrial rulings against her. SDM, on behalf of its client, successfully defeated the motion to compel on the basis of waiver. The appeals court affirmed, holding that the plaintiff’s attempts to manipulate the judicial process resulted in a waiver of her right to arbitrate.
