The Year of Arbitrator Authority

Disputing Blog by Karl Bayer, Beth Graham, Victoria VanBuren, and Holly Hayes

Liz Kramer at Arbitration Nation has compiled a thorough year in review of arbitration cases decided on a variety of topics in 2014. Her blog post, entitled “2014: The Year of Arbitrator Authority,” addresses state and federal court decisions on validity, formation, preemption, vacatur, and, of course, arbitrator authority. According to Ms. Kramer:
