Judicial review of an arbitrator's decision has been a point of much controversy and discussion among jurisdictions. Many state legislatures have enacted arbitration statutes that list the grounds for review of an arbitrator's decision. However, over time, the courts have also developed some common law grounds for judicial review. Conflict often arose when a state's statute did not provide for review on the same grounds as common law. This Note examines how the California Supreme Court dealt with the difference in the statutory and common law grounds for judicial review of an arbitrator's decision.
