Arbitration analysis: O’Farrell J in the Technology and Construction Court has rejected an application for an extension of time for appealing against an arbitration award under section 69 of the Arbitration Act 1996 (AA 1996), which was brought pursuant to AA 1996, s 80. An application for permission to appeal on a point of law pursuant to AA 1996, s 69(2), was likewise refused, as was an application for a stay of enforcement of the award. The judgment is a reminder that extensions of time for challenging arbitration awards are not lightly granted in the English courts. The timetable within which the award debtor’s applications were heard also confirms that the courts will deal swiftly with such challenges when enforcement has already been ordered.
