Jeff Zaino:

If you are appointed a non-neutral party arbitrator and midway through the proceedings, after the right to "ex-parte" conversations has ended, you come to the conclusion that the facts, law and arguments presented by the party who appointed you are completely without merit, how would you handle that?

peter altieri:

You should not judge things "mid-way" through the proceedings. That said, as a neutral, you must remain as such and when the time comes, make the appropriate decision consistent with the facts, law and arguments presented.
