Court of Chancery Explains Limits of Review of Arbitration Award

Posted In Arbitration

World-Win Marketing Inc. v. Ganley Management Co., C.A. 3905-CC (August 18, 2009).

The extent to which a court will review an arbitration award is a tricky question. The court may do so when the arbitrator exceeds his authority. But, what does that really mean? This decision explains this vague standard of review.

In general, if the decision seems grounded in the facts presented to the arbitrator and is within the subjects that she may deal with under the parties agreement to arbitrate, the decision will be upheld even if the court would have decided the matter differently.
