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 Ohio I was able to elect arbitration even after discovery, and the trial date had been set ( 8 months after their filing)...I believe in Ohio you can request it right up until the trial starts. So be sure to check your RCP for Michigan.

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.

MCR 2.116 Summary Disposition©(7)

Also see MCR 2.116 (D) (2) Time to Raise Defenses and Objections

 

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