SCOTUS Narrows Federal Court Jurisdiction Over Arbitration Awards

SCOTUS

Walters, et al., that in order for a federal court to review an arbitrator's award under the Federal Arbitration Act, there must be an independent basis for federal jurisdiction. Therefore, some petitions previously brought to federal court to vacate, modify or confirm an arbitration award must now be brought in state court.
