AAA Arbitration Damages Award under Law 75-republished

In a previous blog on June 12, 2009, I commented about a final award in a Law 75 dispute issued by a three-member Panel under the auspices of the AAA. While arbitration awards have no precedential value beyond the parties or their privies in the dispute, a Panel’s reasoning may be persuasive in cases brought under Law 75. Arbitration awards may be publicly available through special databases in Westlaw and Lexis. The award at issue here was filed in a subsequent enforcement proceeding in federal court and is republished in full in the link below.
