Recent Developments in Arbitration - the Revised Florida Arbitration Code and Recent Supreme Court Decisions
In 2013, the Florida Legislature amended the Florida Arbitration Code when it enacted the Revised Uniform Arbitration Act approved by the National Commission on Uniform State Laws and the American Bar Association. Now called the Revised Florida Arbitration Code, Florida has substantially rewritten the statutes governing arbitration. During the amendment process, the United States Supreme Court has decided cases dealing with arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act, which would preempt the Revised Florida Arbitration Code. This CLE addresses the substantive changes to Florida statutes dealing with arbitration and the decisional law recently handed down by the high court.
