Clopton v. Lauren Yasuda Rainey, DDS, Inc., Alameda Sup. Ct. HG18-908546
In a hotly contested arbitration issue, The First Appellate District (A155470), in an unpublished decision, ruled in favor of the firm?s client. Defendant sought to compel Plaintiff to arbitration. Plaintiff attacked the sufficiency of the arbitration agreement. The appellate court affirmed the trial?s court ruling that the trial court properly excluded certain foundational evidence to the arbitration agreement, submitted by the Defendant, for the first time at the hearing. Defendant failed to submit a reply brief. This win will allow Plaintiff to have her proverbial ?day in Court? and have her case decided by a jury.

ATTENTION: Please note that the Shimoda Law Corp. will only agree to represent a client after the client and the firm both agree in writing to legal representation. Simply inquiring about your case either by phone or e-mail does not guarantee representation by this firm. You should be aware that you have certain time requirements (e.g., statutes of limitation), even as little as 6 months from the illegal occurrence, to pursue your case in the appropriate administrative forum or in a court or law; otherwise, you will be barred forever from bringing a claim. You must act immediately.
