Motion to Compel Arbitration Upheld

Two women filed a sexual harassment complaint against their employer, who filed a motion to compel arbitration.  The trial court ruled for the plaintiffs’ side, holding that the agreement was unconscionable.  The Second Appellate District found the trial court erred – because the agreement was procedurally unconscionable, not substantively unconscionable. Both must be present, although not to the same degree.  The lower court reversed the trial court’s decision denying the motion to compel.  Leos v. Darden Restaurants (CA2/1 B241630 filed 6/4/13, ord. pub. 6/24/13)
