Dennis v. Jack Dennis Sports, Inc.
This case involved an appeal from two district court orders, (1) an order regarding motions related to arbitration and (2) a decision and order over-ruling and denying any requested relief regarding defendants' objections to order regarding motions related to arbitration. In the first order, the district court granted appellee's motion to compel arbitration and stayed district court proceedings. In the second order, the district court overruled objections to the first order. At issue was whether the order compelling arbitration was a final, appealable order. After an examination of state court rules, state statutes, and the Federal Arbitration Act, the Supreme Court held that neither the first nor the second order was an appealable order and dismissed the appeal.
