This matter is before the Court on the Defendants' Amended Motion to Stay
Action pending completion of binding arbitration. The Defendants allege that the claims
raised in Plaintiffs Complaint arise out of the performance of a written subcontract
involving interstate commerce and that the subcontract includes a binding arbitration
provision. Defendants assert that the underlying breach of subcontract claim is subject to,
and should be submitted to, binding arbitration pursuant to the terms of the written
Defendants also assert that the Miller Act payment bond claim raised by
Plaintiff is wholly dependent on the outcome of the underlying subcontract dispute and,
therefore, should also be stayed pending the completion of arbitration.

Defendants' motion, Plaintiff has consented to the stay of this action pending arbitration.
It appears to the Court that the requirements of the Federal Arbitration Act for a stay
of this action pursuant to 9 U.S.C. § 3 have been satisfied. Therefore, the motion to stay this
action is ALLOWED, and this action shall be stayed pending the completion of binding
arbitration. The parties are directed to submit a status report regarding the arbitration
proceedings no later than 90 days from the filing of this order, and every 90 days thereafter
until the arbitration proceedings are concluded.
SO ORDERED. This l3 day of July 2014.
