Arbitration Quarterly: Issue No 4 — December 2013 - .PDF file.

Welcome to the fourth edition of Debevoise & Plimpton’s Arbitration Quarterly, a collection of interesting and significant current developments in international arbitration. It has been a year replete with important developments for arbitral law and practice, and the last quarter was no exception.

In this issue, Debevoise reports on 10 arbitration-related judicial decisions from courts spanning the globe. From US federal courts, the firm surveys decisions concerning the enforcement of annulled awards, standards for vacating awards for arbitrator corruption, the availability of court-ordered arbitrator appointments and the constitutionality of state-administered programmes allowing judges to function as arbitrators in the courthouse. The publication discusses new pro-arbitration decisions in Europe, including a French Court of Appeal decision highlighting France’s approach to compétence-compétence and an English High Court decision concerning the circumstances under which a court should grant an application for an interim injunction in connection with arbitral proceedings. The survey continues to Asia and Africa, where Debevoise discusses two recent decisions of the Indian Supreme Court narrowing the grounds for challenging arbitral awards, a significant decision from the Singapore Court of Appeal clarifying the right to challenge a tribunal’s decision on jurisdiction at the enforcement stage and a Nigerian Court of Appeal decision limiting the circumstances under which a court can intervene in arbitration proceedings…
