11th Circuit Reverses, Says Arbitrability Of Loan Dispute Must Go To Arbitrator
Mealey's (October 30, 2015, 1:24 PM EDT) -- ATLANTA — A federal court erred in not compelling arbitration of a consumer’s claims that two lending companies’ business practices exploited tribal sovereign immunity and illegally sidestepped federal and state regulations because the companies’ arbitration agreement delegates the authority to decide whether the agreement is enforceable to an arbitrator, the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals held Oct. 28 (Joshua Parnell v. CashCall, Inc., et al., No. 14-12082, 11th Cir.; 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 18770).
