Ruling on improper representation in arbitral proceedings

30 August 2017

Authors: Nathalie Voser, Philip Wimalasena

In a French-language decision of 24 July 2017, the Swiss Supreme Court refused to set aside a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) award, dated 13 October 2016, in which the sole arbitrator had ordered a football player (X) to pay outstanding monies to an intermediary (Z) in relation to the negotiation of a player loan deal. X applied to the Supreme Court to vacate the award, arguing that the arbitrator had not treated the parties equally and had violated Swiss public policy. (Decision 4A_668/2016.)
