Parties have been ordered to pick proper arbitrators in a reinsurance dispute. Safety National sued Lloyd’s over a dispute pertaining to the parties’ reinsurance agreements covering certain of Safety National’s underlying workers compensation liabilities. A stay was entered to allow the parties to arbitrate. After six months of wrangling over the naming of arbitrators, Lloyd’s moved to lift the stay for the limited purpose of having the court issue an order requiring that the parties select only arbitrators with workers compensation reinsurance experience, as Lloyd’s contended the contracts required – a position which Safety National contested. Citing the policy embodied in the FAA’s provisions authorizing court involvement in the selection of arbitrators to facilitate efficient arbitration, the court ruled for Lloyd’s. It lifted the stay and ordered that the parties select arbitrators with requisite workers compensation reinsurance experience. Safety National Cas. Corp. v. Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s, London, NO. 02-cv-1146 (USDC M.D. La. Aug. 16, 2011).
