Donaldson Company, Inc. v. Burroughs Diesel, Inc., No. 08-2705

By FindLaw Staff on July 20, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

District court order compelling arbitration between nonsignatory and signatory parties to an agreement with an arbitration clause is reversed where: 1) federal substantive law of arbitrability applies; 2) plaintiff-nonsignatory cannot enforce the arbitration clause against  defendant-signatory as plaintiff cannot establish a sufficiently close relationship to defendant, the claims do not relate to the agreement, and defendant's cross-claim did not rise to the level of substantially interdependent and concerted misconduct.
