The Fifth Circuit vacated an arbitration award on grounds that the arbitrator exceeded his authority under the Federal Arbitration Act where the arbitrator disregarded the express arbitrator and forum-selection clauses in an arbitration agreement. PoolRe Insurance Corp. v. Organizational Strategies, Inc.,783 F.3d 256 (5th Cir. 2015) (No. 14-20433). Some of the parties to the arbitration had agreements requiring arbitration in accordance with the International Chamber of Commerce rules, and other parties had agreements requiring application of American Arbitration Association (AAA) rules. The arbitrator joined all the parties for arbitration under the AAA rules. Because the arbitrator acted contrary to the express provisions of some of the arbitration agreements, he exceeded his authority and the entire arbitration award was vacated.
