WorldVentures RICO pyramid arbitration fails, case reopened
Our last update on Melody Yiru’s lawsuit against WorldVentures noted a September 2018 order compelling arbitration.
In an October 11th order, Yiru and WorldVentures filed a joint-motion requesting the case be reopened.
It appears after a year arbitration between the parties has failed.
Details of the arbitration proceedings are not made public in the joint-motion.
Arbitration was ordered on September 11th, 2018. On October 11th, 2019, exactly thirteen months later,
the arbitrator appointed by AAA issued an Award referring this matter back to this Court.
On October 15th the court granted the joint-motion, reopening the case.
Stay tuned as we continue to track it going forward.
Update 9th November 2019 – On October 31st a mediation order was made.
The order appointed a mediator and directed the parties to complete mediation within 180 days.
WorldVentures meanwhile has filed an injunction motion on November 5th.
The same day the court tentatively scheduled a May 10th, 2021 trial date.
