Decision to vacate arbitration award upheld in MNA caseChris Wachtler / 0 Comments /
On Friday, May 13, 2016 the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issued an order upholding a decision of the United States District Court (Hon. David Doty) vacating a portion of an arbitration award issued on July 18, 2014.
The 8th Circuit confirmed that the arbitrator in this case had exceeded his authority by addressing issues not presented to him by the parties. Christopher Wachtler brought the initial motion to vacate on behalf of MNA and argued the case before Judge Doty, and on February 9, 2016 before a panel of Eighth Circuit judges.
