No more second bites at the apple in arbitration?

Our U.S. face, M. Nycole Hearon, writes that arbitration appeals may become a high-risk option for appellants.  The Seventh Circuit in Johnson Controls, Inc. v. Edman Controls, Inc., __ F.3d __, 2013 WL 1098411 (7th Cir. Mar. 18, 2013) stated that it would start handing down sanctions for parties who attempt to rearbitrate the case by trying to vacate the arbitral award in commercial actions.  In other words, “Stop your whinin’!”
