Arbitration Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC44867 - ARVYS Protein, Inc. v. A/F Protein, Inc. (Arbitration; whether trial court improperly denied plaintiff's application to modify or vacate arbitration award; "The plaintiff, ARVYS Protein, Inc., appeals from the judgment of the trial court, rendered in favor of the defendant, A/F Protein, Inc., on the plaintiff's application to modify or vacate an arbitration award. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court improperly concluded that (1) the arbitrator's award did not exceed the scope of submission by awarding noncontractual relief, (2) the arbitrator did not manifestly disregard the law by ignoring undisputed contract provisions that limited damages and disclaimed warranties, and (3) the award did not violate public policy because it did not arise from the unauthorized practice of law. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment.")
