On August 3, 2009, we reported on a district court vacating its prior order that the arbitration must commence anew and reappointing an arbitrator to the panel after the arbitrator’s health improved. Insurance Company of North America and INA Reinsurance (collectively, “INA”) appealed and also moved for a stay pending appeal arguing that, if the circuit court does not grant a stay, an unauthorized panel would soon hear a key substantive motion, which would potentially compromise INA’s future rights and squander resources in duplicative proceedings. Public Service Mutual Insurance Company moved to dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. The Second Circuit summarily granted the motion for a stay pending appeal and denied the motion to dismiss. Insurance Co. of N. Am. v. Public Serv. Mut. Ins. Co., No. 09-3640 (2d Cir. Jan. 21, 2010).
