Cable Connection, Inc.: Arb Agreements Can Allow For Court Review on the Merits

An arbitration agreement may expressly provide for judicial review, on the merits, of the arbitrator’s decision. Cable Connection, Inc. v. DirectTV, Inc. (2008) 44 Cal.4th 1334 (upholding an arbitration agreement that permits review of decisions where the arbitrators “exceeded their powers” and provided that “arbitrators shall not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, and the award may be vacated or corrected on appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error.”)

Can someone remind us again how arbitration continues to sell itself as a fast, cheap alternative to litigation?
