The trial court properly denied defendant’s motion to vacate the arbitration award on the ground of manifest disregard of the law. The arbitrator properly reconsidered his initial award and reentered an award based on other grounds after defendant’s criminal conviction for fraud was vacated for retrial. The arbitrator properly drew negative inferences from defendant’s invoking the Fifth Amendment in response to discovery requests in this civil case. The arbitrator did not manifestly disregard the law in choosing not to follow an unpublished Delaware decision that was not binding precedent and that the arbitrator carefully considered and rejected as unpersuasive. Finally, the arbitrator did not err in refusing to continue the arbitration until after conclusion of defendant’s criminal trial.
