Contract – Arbitration – Waiver After Litigation

The 4th Circuit says a defendant modular home contractor waived its right to compel arbitration of a buyer’s warranty claims because the contractor waited until the eve of trial, after two years of pretrial motions and a jury verdict against it in another case, but on the same warranty and in the same court, to assert the arbitration clause.
