Vasquez v. Greene Motors: Supreme Court Issues Another Arbitration Grant-And-Hold

In Vasquez v. Greene Motors, Inc. (3/27/13) 214 Cal.App.4th 1172, the Court of Appeal found that a standard arbitration agreement contained in many automobile sales contracts was not unconscionable and reversed a trial court order denying a motion to compel arbitration. The decision follows two other decisions regarding the same arbitration agreement already before the California Supreme Court:
Sanchez v. Valencia Holding Co. LLC (2011) 201 Cal.App.4th 74 (discussed here) rev. granted 3/21/12 (Case No. S199119) (discussed here); and  
Goodridge v. KDF Automotive Group, Inc. (2012) 209 Cal.App.4th 325 (discussed here), rev. granted 12/19/12 and briefing deferred pending Sanchez v. Valencia Holding Co. (Case No. S206153) (discussed here). 
As anticipated, the California Supreme Court on June 27, 2013, granted review (Case No. S210439and held briefing pending its decision in Sanchez v. Valencia Holding Co.
