Petroleum Pipe Americas Corp. v. Jindal Saw Ltd., 08-20461

In an appeal from the District Court's denial of Defendant's motion to stay litigation and compel arbitration, the order is affirmed where Defendant waived its right to arbitrate because it substantially invoked the judicial process by waiting to move to arbitrate until the District Court ruled on an underlying contract issue.
