[Tentative] RULING

TOM MCVEIGH, et al.,

Defendants.

Hearing Date: January 10, 2020

Moving Parties: Petitioner Louis Hahne

Responding Party: Respondent Angela McVeigh

Petition to Confirm Arbitration Award

The court considered the moving, opposition, and reply papers.

RULING

The petition is GRANTED. Judgment shall be entered in conformity with the confirmed Final Arbitration Award. CCP §1287.4.

BACKGROUND

On November 13, 2017, plaintiff Louis Hahne filed a complaint against Tom McVeigh and Angela McVeigh for conversion, elder abuse, breach of contract, malicious prosecution, and declaratory relief.

LEGAL AUTHORITY

Under CCP §1285, any party to an arbitration in which an award has been made may petition the court to confirm, correct or vacate the award. The petition shall name as respondents all parties to the arbitration and may name as respondents any other persons bound by the arbitration award.

Under CCP §1285.4, a petition under this chapter shall: (a) Set forth the substance of or have attached a copy of the agreement to arbitrate unless the petitioner denies the existence of such an agreement. (b) Set forth names of the arbitrators. (c) Set forth or have attached a copy of the award and the written opinion of the arbitrators, if any.

Under CCP §1286, if a petition or response under this chapter is duly served and filed, the court shall confirm the award as made, whether rendered in this state or another state, unless in accordance with this chapter it corrects the award and confirms it as corrected, vacates the award or dismisses the proceedings.

DISCUSSION

Petitioner requests that the court confirm the Final Arbitration Award dated November 15, 2019 against Angela McVeigh.

Petitioner explains that on June 26, 2018, the court ordered the claims against defendant/respondent Angela McVeigh to binding arbitration. On September 12, 2019, an arbitration hearing was conducted by Hon. Jacqueline A. Connor (Ret.) at ADR Services, Inc. On December 3, 2019, the arbitrator served a Final Arbitration Award, dated November 15, 2019.

Petitioner has complied with CCP §1285.4 by attaching the agreement to arbitrate, the name of the arbitrator, and a copy of the final award. The final award was in favor of claimant/petitioner for $43,800. The arbitrator granted claimant’s motion for attorney’s fees and costs in the reduced amounts of $70,800 in attorney’s fees and $13,724.65 in costs.

In opposition, respondent contends that she has been willing to pay the award and that the motion was unnecessary. Respondent asserts any additional attorney’s fees and costs are not warranted with respect to the petition and motion to confirm.

In reply, petitioner contends that the petition was necessary because respondent was not willing to pay the full amount of the award and that, to date, respondent has not tendered any amount.

As petitioner has complied with the applicable statute and respondent has not provided any grounds to correct or vacate the award, the petition is GRANTED.

As for attorney’s fees and costs, “[t]he court shall award costs upon any judicial proceeding under this title as provided in Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 1021) . . . .” CCP §1293.2. Costs are subject to a memorandum of costs and attorney’s fees are subject to a motion.

Petitioner is ordered to give notice of the ruling.
