Tribunal's factual findings not subject to judicial review


Case Number: 4A_324/2020 (18 September 2020)

Tribunal's factual findings not subject to judicial review

In a recently published French-language decision, the Swiss Supreme Court dismissed an application to set aside an award based on an alleged violation of substantive public policy. The court found that it was bound by the factual findings of the arbitral tribunal and that the applicant had acted in bad faith, which precluded it from relying on public policy grounds in the setting-aside proceedings.
