Addressing an issue of first impression in Delaware, the Delaware Supreme Court concluded that there is no principled reason to distinguish an arbitration proceeding from other prior filed actions for purposes of dismissing or staying lawsuits in favor of first-filed actions. LG Electronics, Inc. v. InterDigital Communications, Inc., No. 475, 2014 (Del. Apr. 14, 2015). The court found that the prior filed arbitration was capable of doing prompt and complete justice, the dispute was arbitrable, the tribunal could provide appropriate relief, and the arbitration involved the same parties and the same issues as the subsequently-filed lawsuit. Accordingly, the subsequently filed lawsuit was dismissed in favor of the first filed arbitration.
