In two German-language decisions both dated 23 January 2012, published on 28 March 2012, the Swiss Supreme Court dismissed the petitions to set aside awards, holding, among other things, that the parties' right to be heard is not violated if an arbitrator refuses to hear a witness because he concluded by way of anticipated assessment of evidence on file that the testimony would be irrelevant to the outcome of the dispute.
