New on Swedish Arbitration Portal: Supreme Court refused recognition and enforcement of an award
In a decision recently published on the Swedish Arbitration Portal, the Supreme Court of Sweden refused recognition and enforcement of an award, finding that the party did not have the opportunity to present its case.
The party challenged enforcement of the award pursuant to item 2 of Section 54 of the Swedish Arbitration Act on the grounds that they had not been given an opportunity to present their case in the arbitration. The Supreme Court found there were grounds for not enforcing the award. The Court found that in the circumstances of this case the arbitral tribunal had disregarded the basic principles of due process and not provided the Respondent with an opportunity to present its case.
