Dec. 20, 2021 — Maurice Wutscher attorney Brady Hermann spoke to AdvisorHub recently about the challenges a broker will face moving to vacate an arbitration award based on arbitrators allegedly excluding certain evidence at the hearing.
“Winning a motion to vacate would likely be even more of an uphill battle given courts’ reluctance to supersede arbitrator decisions and the high bar for vacature under the Federal Arbitration Act,” Mr. Hermann told AdvisorHub. “’This is a very difficult standard to meet.’”
