Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 422 F.2d 871 (4th Cir. 1970)

Argued January 8, 1970
Decided April 7, 1970

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia, at Fairmont; Sidney L. Christie, Judge.

Eugene F. Brady, New York City (Hart & Hume, New York City, Oscar J. Andre, and Steptoe & Johnson, Clarksburg, W. Va., on the brief), for appellant.

Herman J. Obert, Philadelphia, Pa. (Cushman & Obert, Philadelphia, Pa., and Herschel Rose, Fairmont, W. Va., on the brief), for appellees.

Before SOBELOFF, CRAVEN and BUTZNER, Circuit Judges.


We find no error in the District Judge's order. The objections to the order seem to us without substance. Indeed, we think the order points to an eminently fair and practicable way to terminate a controversy already too long protracted. The arbitration begun and now pending in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, should proceed without further delay.
