Conrad v. Phone Directories Co., No. 07-6276

By FindLaw Staff on November 11, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In an interlocutory appeal of the district court's denial of defendants' motion to dismiss premised on the existence of an arbitration agreement, the appeal is dismissed for lack of jurisdiction where, to properly invoke appellate jurisdiction under the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), the movant must either explicitly move to stay litigation and/or compel arbitration pursuant to the FAA, or it must be unmistakably clear from the four corners of the motion that the movant seeks relief provided for in the FAA.
