Arbitration – Motion To Compel – Arbitrator Selection

Where a lender challenged the denial of an application to compel arbitration in a dispute with a borrower over a loan default, the judgment is affirmed because the arbitrator designated in the parties’ documents was no longer available, and the trial court properly found that it could not designate a new arbitrator since the language of the arbitration agreement limited arbitration to the agreed-upon arbitrator.

Judgment is affirmed.
