A US district court in the Eighth Circuit has followed circuit precedent and rejected the “manifest disregard of the law” attack on an arbitration award. The court confirmed an award and denied a motion to vacate, holding that “it is well-established in the Eighth Circuit that the ‘manifest disregard of the law’ doctrine is no longer good law, and this Court is bound to follow the established law of the Eighth Circuit.” Jay Packaging Group, Inc. v. Mark Andy, Inc., Case No. 4:10MC00763 (USDC E.D. Mo. Jan. 21, 2011).
