CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE.
Bowman and Brooke was retained to represent Axiom Solutions after judgment had been entered against it and the trial court denied a motion to compel arbitration. At the appellate level, the Minnesota Court of Appeals determined that although Axiom had breached a Settlement Agreement that did not contain arbitration provisions, the dispute against Axiom Solutions must nonetheless be sent to arbitration because the underlying money the opposing party sought to collect was based on a contract that did contain arbitration provisions. The Court of Appeals reversed the trial court's judgment and ordered that the case be “referred to mediation and, if necessary, arbitration.” The parties reached an amicable resolution at mediation without the need to pursue arbitration as a result of the appellate decision in favor of Axiom Solutions.
Axiom Solutions was represented by Bowman and Brooke Partners C.J. Schoenwetter and Roshan Rajkumar.
