A United States district court in Louisiana recently dismissed a suit brought under the Federal Arbitration Act to enforce a subpoena duces tecum issued in an arbitration proceeding. The district court granted the defendant’s motion to dismiss on two grounds. First, the court held that the amount in controversy requirement for diversity jurisdiction was lacking because the plaintiffs were asserting no claim against the defendant in the federal court action; the plaintiffs sought only the production of discovery documents. Second, the court ruled that Section 7 of the FAA provides for the enforcement of a subpoena duces tecum against a non-party only if the non-party is compelled to testify as a witness before the arbitrator. Because the defendant was not summoned to testify in the arbitration proceeding, the subpoena duces tecum was unenforceable. Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. N.V., et al. v.
