Arbitration analysis: In the Commercial Court, Mr Butcher QC (sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge) dismissed a challenge to a partial arbitral award, made in an ad hoc commodities arbitration, on grounds of serious irregularity pursuant to subsections 68(2)(a), (d), (f) and (i) of the Arbitration Act 1996 (AA 1996). Although an example of another failed AA 1996, s 68 application, the judgment is of interest due to the court’s consideration of the categories of alleged serious irregularity raised by the claimant in this case.
