Stay of Mechanic's Lien Enforcement Pending Arbitration - Study J-1304

    Code of Civil Procedure Section 1281.5 relates to preservation of arbitration rights during mechanic's lien enforcement proceedings. In 2000, the Commission approved a recommendation proposing to amend this provision to simplify the procedure for preserving arbitration rights and obtaining a stay pending arbitration. In 2002, the Commission approved a revised recommendation proposing a different amendment of the provision. A bill to implement the revised recommendation was introduced in 2003, but was amended in the legislative process to implement the original recommendation instead. The bill was enacted. See SB 113 (Ackerman), 2003 Cal. Stat. ch. 22.
