From Regnery Publishing, Inc. v. Miniter, 2010 U.S. App. LEXIS 5746 (D.C. Cir. Mar. 17, 2010):
Appellant has not shown that the arbitrator's failure to rule on appellant's motion for recusal required vacatur of an arbitration award as set forth in the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 10(a), in light of the American Arbitration Association's consideration of the merits of his requests for recusal and its ruling that the arbitrator "will be reaffirmed." See Appx. at 69; American Arbitration Association, Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures, R-17(b) (providing that the Association's decision whether an arbitrator should be disqualified "shall be conclusive").
