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

GREEN BAY | MADISON | MILWAUKEE | MINNEAPOLIS – 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).
