Panel to Consider Arbitration Post-Hall Street Associates

On October 6, 2008, the ABA's Section on Public Contracts is sponsoring a Panel Discussion concerning the Supreme Court's ruling in Hall Street Associates v Mattel, ___ U.S. ___ (2008) and its impact on arbitration in federal procurement cases. We first reported on the Hall Street decision here.

The panel includes:
  • Donald P. Armadas, a former Judge at the ASBCA who now serves as an arbitrator and mediator;
  • Judge Paul Williams, Chairman, Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals: and,
  • Frederick J. Lees, Professor Emeritus, George Washington University School of Law.
The panel will discuss the limitations on judicial review of arbitration awards, and the ways in which arbitration can be made more time and cost efficient.
