In decision 4A_188/2013, the Swiss Supreme Court considered whether an arbitral tribunal had violated the petitioner's right to be heard.
In a French-language decision of 15 July 2013, published on 31 July 2013, the Swiss Supreme Court ruled, according to its case law, that the exceptional circumstances in which it recognises a violation of the right to be heard were not present in this case. The arbitral tribunal had not failed to address the relevant arguments made by the petitioner and had not based its decision on an unexpected legal ground. (Decision 4A_188/2013.)
