Wisconsin Supreme Court Issues Unanimous Decision in Favor of DeWitt's Clients

Jun 16, 2022 | Michelle M. Friedman

In October of 2021, DeWitt litigators Barret Van Sicklen, Deborah Meiners and Jordan Rohlfing successfully argued to the Wisconsin Supreme Court on behalf of their clients Lisa Taylor and Luis Cuevas that they were prejudiced by the decision of an arbitrator because he fell asleep during an evidentiary hearing. The DeWitt team convinced the Court their clients had not forfeited their objections to the arbitrator’s conduct because they had properly raised the objections before the arbitral award against them was issued. The Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed and issued a unanimous decision today reversing and remanding the decision of the Court of Appeals in Loren Imhoff Homebuilder, Inc. v. Taylor (2019AP002205).

One of the best features about our website articles and blog entries is that they are timely—you get up-to-date information on the law as it exists at the time. The downside is that the law changes, but our older entries don't. That means we can't guarantee you are getting the most current law when reading through past entries. Please don't take these articles and blog entries and rely on them as legal advice. Give us a call instead, for specific and pointed advice for your particular situation.
