Arbitration analysis: Mrs Justice Cockerill sitting in the Commercial Court dismissed an application made pursuant to section 72 of the Arbitration Act 1996 (AA 1996), to set aside two awards on the ground that the arbitrator did not have substantive jurisdiction. An application to convert the awards into English judgments had previously been granted under section 66(2) of the Arbitration Act 1996 (AA 1996). Cockerill J accepted that the contractual right of action arising from the awards had therefore been merged into the judgment, and there was no longer a right which could be raised under AA 1996, s 72.
