• The Arbitration Clause in a Waiver does not withstand from a Prior Agreement or a Signature from a Non-Custodial Adult.
  • July 2, 2018
  • The court denied a trampoline park’s motion to compel arbitration. Although a waiver limiting a cause of action to arbitration had been previously signed by a custodial adult, that waiver did not apply to a second date of attendance for a different event at the same park. The signature of a mother of the minor’s friend on a waiver on the second attendance was not enough to waive the right to jury trial. The first agreement provided no language that it would remain valid and applicable to all future visits. The second agreement had no precedent for the contention that an unrelated person could bind the plaintiff to an arbitration clause. The court’s denial was affirmed.
