matter is STAYED pending the completion of arbitration pursuant to 9 U.S.C. § 3.
Defendant’s motion (Doc. #21) is DENIED to the extent it seeks dismissal of Plaintiff’s
claims against Defendant.
It is further ORDERED that the parties shall file a jointly prepared report on the status

Finally, it is ORDERED that Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. #22)
