Judicial Supervision of an Ongoing Arbitration
Paul Bennett Marrow writes: Even though the FAA does not mention a judicial power to supervise, some courts justify intervention to overturn interim arbitral decisions, claiming authority in equity, i.e. to assure the fairness and efficiency of the arbitration process. But while it is possible to enlist the assistance of a court, it isn't easy to do so.
