I urge you to take a read of this article on Law360. It relates to the topic that’s currently before the US Supreme Court.
The piece talks about how alternative dispute resolution provider FedArb, has urged the U.S. Supreme Court to rule that private commercial arbitrations outside the U.S. qualify for discovery within the country, saying the idea that private and state-sponsored tribunals are different is "illusory."
The piece explains that the high court is grappling with a circuit split over whether private tribunals qualify for arbitration, since aerospace component parts maker Servotronics Inc. filed discovery requests under various appellate court jurisdictions that yielded opposite results.
Interesting read and certainly one to keep an eye on if you are in arbitration.
The dispute stems from a January 2016 incident, when a Rolls-Royce engine valve installed on a Boeing 747 Dreamliner aircraft and manufactured by Servotronics caught fire at Boeing's Charleston, South Carolina, facility. Rolls-Royce opened an arbitration in the United Kingdom against Servotronics, in an attempt to force the parts maker to pay $12.8 million.
