AGUILAR v. WEI EQUIPMENT

United States District Court, E.D. Pennsylvania


February 11, 2004.

ARMANDO AGUILAR
v.
WEI EQUIPMENT Defendant, Third Party Plaintiff v. MECO, INC. and WEILER & COMPANY, INC., Third Party Defendants and MECO, INC., Third Party Defendant/Fourth Party Plaintiff v. DeVAULT PACKING COMPANY

The opinion of the court was delivered by: JAMES KELLY, Senior District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Before the Court is a Motion for Continuance of an arbitration presently scheduled for February 12, 2004. The reason for the continuance by counsel for Third Party Defendant Defendant, Meco, Inc., is that he has scheduled a prepaid vacation which begins February 12, 2004, the day the arbitration is to be held. This arbitration was continued on November 17, 2004, to a new date, February 12, 2004.

One of the purposes of compulsory arbitration is a swift, convenient, inexpensive method of dissolving disputes. The Board of Arbitrators have been appointed and presumably have Page 2 cleared their calendars for the arbitration. This motion was filed with the Court on February 6, 2004. If a prepaid vacation is the reason for the continuance, it certainly was known to counsel on or about November 25, 2003, as that is the date the arbitration clerk sent out the notice.

  Upon consideration it is ORDERED that Third Party Defendant/Fourth Party Plaintiff's Motion for Continuance is DENIED. Page 1
