RICHARD REUBEN PUBLISHES ARTICLE ADVOCATING PROCESS PURITY OF ARBITRATION
Prof. Richard C. Reuben released his article, “Process Purity and Innovation in Dispute Resolution: A Response to Professors Stempel, Cole, and Drahozal,” which will be published in a forthcoming issue of the Nevada Law Journal.  He challenges arguments that arbitration awards should be subject to substantive court review under various conditions, arguing that this would displace the finality of arbitration awards and undermine important process values of arbitration.  The article is available at http://ssrn.com/abstract=1007506.
