Florida’s Court of Appeals upholds decision denying arbitration, ultimately resulting in a multi-million dollar verdict

Location: Florida

Plaintiff: William Yarawsky
Defendant: Bayshore Pointe Nursing & Rehab Center

Description: Florida’s Second District Court of Appeals affirmed a trial court’s order denying a defendants’ motion to compel arbitration based upon a finding that the nursing home resident was not a third-party beneficiary of an arbitration agreement signed by the resident’s wife during his admission process. The Second District Court of Appeals’ holding allowed for the plaintiff’s case to proceed before a judge and jury, which ultimately returned a multi-million dollar verdict in favor of the plaintiff.
