Meszaros v. 464235 B.C. Ltd., 2018 BCSC 2033
Owen James successful for the respondent in an application to set aside an arbitration award.
In the underlying arbitration, the respondent numbered company was awarded various amounts arising from the sale of an engineering business. The petitioner, Meszaros, sought to set aside that award on the ground the arbitrator failed to abide by rules of natural justice in the course of the arbitration and, in his award, committed various errors of law. In dismissing the petitioner’s application, the court found that the approach taken by the arbitrator below was fair, and that in finding for the numbered company he did not commit errors of law justifying that leave be granted.
