Odyssey Reinsurance Co. petitioned the court to appoint an umpire to serve in arbitration with its retrocessionaries, certain Lloyd’s underwriters and Reliastar Reinsurance Group, over a disputed reinsurance claim. Odyssey argued that arbitration had been unduly delayed due to what it contended were poorly qualified candidates proposed by the retrocessionaires. The court held that Odyssey’s arguments were insufficient to obtain relief from the court at that time, and that in its view, there had “not been a breakdown in the process that justifies court intervention.” The court directed the parties “to proceed to the next stage of arbitrator selection” as described in the agreements between them. Odyssey Reinsurance Co. v. Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s London Syndicate 53, et al., Case No. 1:13-cv-09014 (USDC S.D.N.Y. June 30, 2014) (Opinion & Order and Judgment).
