Arbitration award affirmed against challenge that trial court erred in ordering case to arbitration

Meyerman v. Burgess (June 20, 2006, E037902) 2006 WL 1682627 (California Court of Appeal, Fourth District, Division Two (Riverside)) [nonpublished opinion]. Carolyn Oill and Robin Meadow won this affirmance. The appeal sought to overturn a highly favorable arbitration award on the ground that the trial court erred in compelling arbitration over the other side’s claim of waiver. The court accepted GMSR’s argument that substantial evidence supported the trial court’s rejection of the defendant’s waiver claim, and even said that it would affirm if the standard of review were de novo.
