First Department Affirms Order Remanding Arbitration to New Arbitrator

On April 11, 2019, the First Department issued a decision in Policy Admin. Solutions, Inc. v. QBE Holdings, Inc., 2019 NY Slip Op. 02818, affirming a lower court decision to remand an arbitration to a different arbitrator, explaining: "The court providently exercised its discretion in clarifying that the original arbitrator was not to hear the remanded arbitration. That ruling had been appealed and affirmed by this Court (160 AD3d 572, 573 [1st Dept 2018])."
