In a summary order, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s confirmation of an arbitration award issued in favor of NCG Network Asia and the denial of PAC Pacific Group International’s motion to vacate. The court found that the arbitrator had properly disclosed a prior business relationship that indirectly linked him with NCG Network Asia, nothing about the relationship would compel a reasonable person to believe that the arbitrator was partial, and that PAC Pacific Group had thus not made the requisite showing to entitle it to post-arbitration discovery on the arbitrator’s alleged bias. The court also held that there was nothing inappropriate in denying PAC Pacific Group’s challenges to the arbitrator based on alleged impartiality, which denials complied with governing AAA rules and, further, that the arbitrator’s conclusion that there was no breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing was in accord with applicable law. NGC Network Asia, LLC v. PAC Pacific Group International, Inc., No. 12-0967 (2d Cir. Feb. 11, 2013).
