Gravillis v. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Co., B182588
In suit brought by home buyers against brokers after learning the home they bought was unihabitable from extensive structural damage, and alleging they experienced emotional distress and developed diabetes, denial of motion to compel arbitration on ground that the action fell within exclusion for bodily injury is reversed, as an action for bodily injury, within the meaning of an arbitration exclusion in a residential purchase agreement, does not encompass plaintiffs' claims.
