“Is Arbitration Ever Time-Barred?”

In Park Plus, Inc. v. Palisades of Towson, LLC, the Maryland Court of Appeals held that a motion to compel arbitration under the Maryland Uniform Arbitration Act is not subject to a statute of limitations applicable to a “civil action at law.” Acknowledging that an “arbitrator may still decide that [the claimant’s] substantive claim is untimely, even if the demand for arbitration is not,” the court offered no guidance on how an arbitrator is to make that determination, other than an evaluation of the specific facts.

The Park Plus decision is a focus of this article by Darci Smith and Barry Rosen of the Gordon Feinblatt firm. The article is available on Lexology.
