“Can You Waive Appellate Review of an Arbitration Award? The Fourth Circuit Says Yes”

John Lewis of Baker Hostetler has written this article, available at Lexology, discussing the Fourth Circuit’s recent decision in Beckley Oncology Associates, Inc. v. Abumasmah. The Fourth Circuit dismissed the lower court’s dismissal of a complaint to vacate an arbitration award, because “[t]he employment agreement between BOA and Abumasmah purported to waiveb oth judicial and appellate review of the arbitrator’s decision. Because the waiver of appellate review is enforceable, we dismiss BOA’s appeal.”
