Hall Street Associates, L.L.C. v. Mattel, Inc. (March 25, 2008)

Articles Discussing Case:

Mandatory Arbitration of Employment Disputes: Is It Right For Your Company? (pdf).

Nexsen Pruet • July 09, 2008
On March 25, 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Hall Street Assocs. LLC v. Mattel, Inc. that courts “must” confirm an arbitration award unless that award is vacated, modified, or corrected on the basis of some very narrow and exclusive categories. The Court further held that the parties to an arbitration agreement could not contractually agree to modify a reviewing court’s authority to vacate or modify the arbitration award. While this case emphasized the limited grounds for reversal and review under the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), it also underscored the potential advantages of arbitration of disputes – in contrast to civil litigation – for employers.
