Q: Do arbitrators intervene in appeal of arbitration awards?
I have filed a motion to vacate an arbitration award which was administered by an arbitrator employed by the Attorney General’s office. The AG has filed a motion to intervene as well as a motion to dismiss. This seems unusual. Do arbitrators normally become involved in the appeal process?
A: No, in my experience arbitrators do not usually become involved in the appeal process. But what is your question directed to, concerning the appeal process or your case?
Tim Akpinar agrees with this answer
I have not seen it in arbitrations that I've handled. In my experience, if a decision was appealed, it would go to a master arbitrator, whose review was separate from that of the original arbitrator. Nationwide, there are different companies that administer arbitrations, and their policies and procedures could differ from one to the other. When the decision of the appeal became available, everyone involved was provided with a copy, but the appeals process was procedurally a separate matter. Good luck
