Synopsis By: Dissen - Proceeding Author: Benjamin C. Roberts

An examination of findings and recommendations made by state and federal courts since 1955 in matters of alleged misconduct by labor arbitrators. Allegations of arbitral misconduct are more common in commercial arbitration where, the author speculates, the parties are both less informed in their selection of arbitrators and more willing to seek court reversal of an award on any pretext. Roberts largely confines his review to labor arbitration and identifies and discusses fifteen (15) problem areas.
