Singh Management Company, LLC v. Singh Development Company Inc., No. 18-1566 (6th Cir. May 20, 2019)05/22/2019
Court of appeals vacated the denial of a motion to clarify or amend judgment related to the confirmation of an arbitral award. Court found inconsistencies in the district court’s orders first confirming an arbitral award followed by a decision entering injunctive relief. Court held it was not possible to discern an explanation for these inconsistencies and vacated the denial motion remanding the case for further proceedings.
Inversiones y Procesadora Tropical Inprosta, S.A., No. 18-14807 (11th Cir. Sept. 5, 2019)09/05/2019
Court of appeals affirmed that district court had subject-matter jurisdiction over plaintiff’s motion to vacate an arbitration award. Court also affirmed lower court’s issuance of sanctions against plaintiff, finding that plaintiff attacked the arbitration award without a legal basis for doing so and thus acted in bad faith.
EPRO Services, Inc., v. Regenesis Bioremediation Products, No. 6:19-CV-01220-EFM-KGG (D. Kan. Sept. 4, 2019)09/04/2019
Court granted defendant’s motion to compel arbitration and rejected plaintiff’s argument that the court should retain jurisdiction over requests for preliminary injunctive relief—pending arbitration. Court found that because it had already dissolved plaintiff’s prior temporary restraining order, it saw no reason to grant a subsequent request for preliminary injunctive relief. Court thus compelled arbitration of all claims and stayed further proceedings.
