The Third Circuit affirmed the lower court’s denial of a motion to vacate, agreeing that the petitioner had failed to show that the arbitrator was evidently partial. Freeman v. Pittsburgh Glass Works, LLC, 709 F.3d 240 (3d Cir. 2013) (No. 12-2026). The petitioner had filed the motion to vacate upon discovering that the arbitrator had received contributions for a judicial campaign from the respondents’ minority owner. The court found that no reasonable person would conclude from this that the arbitrator was partial to the respondent. The campaign funds were a matter of public record, the contributions were small, and the arbitrator received a much larger contribution from the law firm representing the petitioner.
