Last summer on behalf of a minority shareholder BaintonLynch sued Sunbelt Holding, Inc., a member of the Charmer Sunbelt Group, one of the nation's largest liquor distributors. See www.charmer-sunbelt.com. Sunbelt asked the Court to compel our client to submit to arbitration pursuant to a shareholders agreement that our client did not sign, nor was ever asked to sign. We opposed the motion. Apparently thinking that Goliath could rollover David, Sunbelt commenced an arbitration while the Supreme Court was considering its motion to compel arbitration. In short order, BaintonLynch obtained a Court Order enjoining Sunbelt from proceeding with that Arbitration pending further order of the Court.
