In a decision dated 25 August 2009, published on 22 September 2009, the Swiss Federal Supreme Court held that conduct which would justify the piercing of the corporate veil would, in principle, fall within the scope of an applicable arbitration provision and thus would preclude the jurisdiction of the Swiss court. However, in view of the specific circumstances the court did not confirm the lower court's decision but sent the case back for further consideration.
