The court granted plaintiff’s motion to compel arbitration against the Wilkes firm.  In sum, Judge McKinley said that plaintiff counsel is raising the “same” [between the lines, “tired, old”] arguments they’ve raised in other cases before the court, that the arbitration agreement clearly stated that it was not a condition of admission and that plaintiffs were waiving their right to a jury trial, and that there is no difference between the KUAA and the FAA in requiring enforcement of an arbitration contract like any other contract parties acknowledge they entered.
