Defendant waived her right to compel arbitration by waiting for 2 years into the litigation before moving to compel arbitration.  Though prejudice to the opposing party is an important factor to consider in deciding whether arbitration has been waived, waiver can be found even without a showing of prejudice.  Anyway, long delay in bringing a motion to compel arbitration may prejudice the opposing party which thereby loses arbitration’s vaunted advantage of speedy disposition.  During the 2 years before the motion to compel, much discovery was taken and a summary adjudication motion was filed–all of the litigation activity costing the opposing party over $300,000 in attorney fees.
