Court of Chancery Declines to Upset Unusual Arbitration Ruling

Posted In Arbitration

Zurich America Insurance Company v. St. Paul Surplus Lines Inc., C.A. 4095-VCP (December 10, 2009, revised April 14, 2010)

In this case, the Court of Chancery declined to upset an arbitrator's decision and explained the limits on the Court's review of arbitration awards. Here, that limit applied even when the arbitrator had declined to rule based on his decision that he lacked jurisdiction.
