When Is It To Late To Elect For Arbitration


Recommended Posts

That depends on your state laws, and local court.


And it also depends on what a specific agreement states.


In my court I was able to motion to compel after a date had been set for a judgement hearing.


But in FL you need to practically do it before you are sued.... no not really that bad but

it needs to be done very early in proceedings.

In Michigan, the rules of civil procedure under Summary Disposition state that the existance of 'an agreement to arbitrate' is a viable defense.

Logically, arbitration is electable up to, and in an Opposition to Summary Disposition.

That is what the rule says ........ expect the plaintiff to squack
