Massachusetts SJC Issues Important Decision Curtailing The Availability Of Attorney's Fees In Arbitration

In Beacon Towers Condominium Trust v. Alex, 473 Mass. 472 (2016) ("Beacon Towers"), the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decided that an arbitral tribunal had overstepped the bounds of its authority when it awarded attorney's fees pursuant to the Commonwealth's frivolous claims statute. The SJC ultimately vacated the arbitral tribunal's fee award, despite noting that arbitration awards enjoy an exceptionally narrow scope of judicial review.
