US Life Ins. Co. v. Superior Nat'l. Ins. Co., No. 07-55938
In a motion to vacate an arbitral award in a reinsurance dispute, the denial of the motion is affirmed where, although the process employed by the arbitration panel, which included an ex parte meeting with panel retained workers' compensation experts, was unusual, the arbitration process provided the parties with a fundamentally fair arbitration and the arbitration award rested on a plausible interpretation of the governing arbitration documents.
