In a French-language decision dated 16 May 2011 and published on 26 May 2011, the Swiss Supreme Court confirmed that an arbitral tribunal was competent even though contractual pre-arbitral steps had not been complied with. The award was, however, set aside based on the violation of the right to be heard, since the arbitral tribunal had not dealt in the award with an argument raised by one of the parties.
