If a valid arbitration agreement exists and the parties have begun but not completed the arbitration process, neither party can obtain judicial review of the arbitrators' interlocutory ruling on a discovery issue subject to the arbitration agreement by filing a declaratory judgment action in circuit court. Judicial review cannot be obtained on issues subject to the arbitration agreement until after the arbitration process is complete. (HARRIS and QUINN, concurring.)
