UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
February 20, 2008
NEW JERSEY CARPENTERS FUNDS, ET. AL., PLAINTIFFS,
CBC CARPET, INC., OMEGA DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Katharine S. Hayden, U.S.D.J.
ORDER REINSTATING MOTION TO VACATE
Petitioners New Jersey Carpenters Funds, New Jersey Regional Council of Carpenters, and Zazzali, Fagella, Nowak, Kleinbaum & Friedman, P.C. (collectively "petitioners") filed a motion to confirm arbitration awards against respondents CBC Carpet, Inc. and Omega on November 15, 2007. (Docket entry # 2.) Respondent Omega made a motion to vacate the arbitration award on December 19, 2007. (Docket entry # 6.) Their filing was necessary to preserve their right to challenge the arbitration award pursuant to 9 U.S.C. § 12 ("Notice of a motion to vacate, modify, or correct an award must be served upon the adverse party or his attorney within three months after the award is filed or delivered."). The Court dismissed the motion on December 27, 2007. (Docket entry # 8.) Because Omega raises issues concerning whether it had notice of the arbitration and whether it was subject to arbitration, the Court will reinstate their motion to vacate and allow petitioners an opportunity to respond to Omega's allegations.
Good cause appearing,
It is on this 20th day of February, 2008
ORDERED that the Court's December 27, 2007 order (docket entry # 8) is hereby vacated; and it is further
ORDERED that Omega's motion to vacate (docket entry # 6) be reinstated; and it is further
ORDERED that petitioners shall file any opposition to Omega's motion to vacate no later than February 25, 2008. The return date shall be set for March 3, 2008.
