JASON M. MALIK,
Case No. 16-10477
HON. GEORGE CARAM STEEH
SERVICES, LLC et al.,
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO STRIKE
DEFENDANT’S AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSES (DOC. 36)
This matter is presently before the Court on plaintiff’s motion to strike
the affirmative defenses of defendant RAC Acceptance East, LLC d/b/a
Acceptance Now (RAC). (Doc. 36). Plaintiff’s motion was filed on May 20,
2016. RAC’s motion to dismiss and compel arbitration, (Doc. 31), was
pending at that time. On July 19, 2016, the Court issued an order granting
in part and denying in part Defendant RAC Acceptance East, LLC d/b/a
Acceptance Now’s (RAC) motion to dismiss and compel arbitration. (Doc.
47). The Court did not dismiss the claims against RAC, but stayed the
proceedings, “to the extent that they concern defendant RAC,” and ordered
“that any threshold arbitrability challenges raised by plaintiff be arbitrated in
accordance with the terms of the arbitration agreement.” (Id. at 12).
Accordingly, plaintiff’s motion to strike RAC’s affirmative defenses is
DENIED without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
