Dumas & Pines Win Arbitration in LLC Membership Dispute

Aaron Dumas and Lester Pines, along with attorneys from the Pittsburgh firm of Cohen & Grigsby, P.C., won an arbitration on behalf of an Pennsylvania limited liability company (LLC) in a dispute about the refusal of a Wisconsin LLC to recognize that it was bound by a purchase agreement to transfer its membership shares in a third limited liability company to the Pennsylvania company. Following a two-and-a-half day hearing in November, the arbitrator in a written decision issued on December 7, held that the Wisconsin LLC breached the agreement.

Whitford on behalf of the League of Conservation Voters, the National Education Association, the Wisconsin Education Association Council, the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Anthony Evers, and former DNR Secretary George Meyer. The case, now before the U.S. Supreme Court, raises a constitutional challenge to the Wisconsin legislative districts enacted in 2011 based on partisan gerrymandering.
