Court Of Chancery Discusses Scope Of Arbitration

Posted In Arbitration

RBC Capital Markets Corp. v. Thomas Weisel Partners LLC, C.A. 4709-VCN (February 25, 2010)

Many decisions discuss when arbitration is required by an agreement.  This one deals with the rarer problem of what claims may be presented to arbitrators in a matter that the parties concede must be arbitrated.  The Court will usually leave that decision to the arbitrators in the first instance, but will at least consider if a claim is so far outside  the scope of the arbitration clause that its presentation should be barred.
