Court of Chancery Stays Suit In Favor of Arbitration
Posted In ArbitrationFriendly Ghost Enterprises LLC v. McWilliams, C.A. No. 2935-VCN (July 27, 2007). Sometimes fiduciary duty claims are mixed in with claims that are subject to an arbitration provision. The issue then is whether the nonarbitration claims for breach of fiduciary duty are to be stayed in favor of arbitrating the other claims first. Here, the Court granted a stay because the resolution of the fiduciary duty claims and the claims for dissolution and a receiver would be illuminated by the resolution of the claims to be arbitrated.
