Arbitration - Sixth Circuit Continues Favorable Support of Arbitration

Posted on Jan 11 2014 4:59PM by Attorney, Jason A. Lee

Sometimes I want to bring your attention to other great legal blog commentary on things that may be of interest to those that are involved in Tennessee litigation.  A recent post by the Sixth Circuit Appellate Blog discussed recent Sixth Circuit decisions on arbitration.  There is a clear trend in the Sixth Circuit and in many of the other Federal Circuits of favoring arbitration and providing great deference to the decisions of arbitrators.  One recent case is discussed in this blog post is a Sixth Circuit decision supporting the decision of the arbitrator even though the decision was contrary to Sixth Circuit precedent.  The Court supported the decision because it provided a “colorable” reading of an ERISA statute and therefore the arbitrator’s decision was upheld.

I recommend that you read this post (it can be found here) and these cases if you have any desire to appeal an arbitration decision in the Sixth Circuit.  These recent cases may make you reconsider such an appeal unless you have rock solid grounds for the appeal.
