Temporary Conservators Could Not Commit To Arbitration Absent Court Approval

A California Court of Appeal has sustained the denial of a senior living facility’s petition to compel arbitration of claims brought on behalf of a deceased resident. At the time of admission, temporary conservators signed an agreement that included an arbitration requirement. However, the court held that temporary conservators lacked the authority to bind the resident to making long-term decisions without court approval. The court’s opinion in Holley v. Silverado Senior Living Management, Inc. can be accessed here.
