Tentative Rulings

Case Number: 19STLC09567    Hearing Date: March 09, 2020    Dept: 25

MOTION TO COMPEL ARBITRATION

(CCP § 1281.2, et seq.)

TENTATIVE RULING:

Plaintiff Eric Saravia’s Motion to Compel Arbitration, Petition for Court to Pick Arbitration Forum, for a Stay, and Request for Costs is PLACED OFF CALENDAR. Proposed Order pursuant to the parties’ Stipulation to be signed by the Court.

ANALYSIS:

  1. Background & Discussion

On October 16, 2019, Plaintiff Eric Saravia (“Plaintiff”) filed an action for violation of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, unlawful acts or practices, negligent misrepresentation, and claim against surety against Defendants Freeway Auto Group, Inc. dba 605 Auto, Inc. (“Freeway”), Foreman Financial, Inc. (“Foreman”), and Hudson Insurance Company (“Hudson”). On January 17, 2020, Defendant Hudson filed an Answer.

On December 17, 2019, Plaintiff filed the instant Motion to Compel Arbitration, Petition for Court to Pick Arbitration Forum, for a Stay, and Request for Costs (the “Motion”) as to Defendants Freeway and Foreman. No oppositions have been filed.

On February 25, 2020, the parties filed a Stipulation to Stay the Action and Proceed to Arbitration (the “Stipulation”) with a Proposed Order. The Stipulation indicates that Plaintiff, Freeway, and Foreman agree to resolve the dispute in binding arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and stay the prosecution of this action. (2/25/20 Stipulation, p. 2.) In addition, the parties agree that the action is stayed as to Defendant Hudson who will not participate in the arbitration proceedings, that Hudson’s stipulation is only as to the stay, and that Hudson takes no position as to the proposed arbitration between the parties. (Id.)

The Proposed Order stays the action to proceed with arbitration with the AAA, requests that all pending hearings currently on calendar be vacated, and requests that the Court set a Post-Arbitration Review Hearing for August 10, 2020. (Id.)

As the parties have resolved the arbitration issue, and pursuant to the parties’ Stipulation, the Motion is PLACED OFF CALENDAR.

  1. Conclusion & Order

For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiff Eric Saravia’s Motion to Compel Arbitration, Petition for Court to Pick Arbitration Forum, for a Stay, and Request for Costs is PLACED OFF CALENDAR. Proposed Order pursuant to the parties’ Stipulation to be signed by the Court.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.
