If an arbitration agreement states a time period within which to compel arbitration, then under CCP § 1281.12 the time period can be tolled within specific procedural limits. If an arbitration agreement states no time period, then CCP § 1281.5 (c) imposes procedural time limits to compel to at or before the defendant files an answer (or in lieu of an answer to the complaint). Under CCP § 1281.2(a) failure to follow these limits is a waiver of the right to compel. Is this correct? In my case, I’m suing my bank. The arbitration agreement states nothing about a time period within which to compel. I filed the complaint. The bank filed an answer and never challenged my choice to file in superior court nor tried to compel arbitration. Did the bank thereby waive its right to compel arbitration?
