Joe Nilan and Jake Merkel prevailed in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals on behalf of a home inspector client. The court of appeals’ decision affirms the circuit court’s previous ruling in our client’s favor, and holds that the claims against our client are subject to binding arbitration under the parties’ contract. The court also rejected the plaintiffs’ arguments that the arbitration clause was unconscionable or against public policy.
