When Discovery Seems Unavailable, It’s Probably Available, 80 New York State Bar Association Journal 44 (October 2008)

Abstract: Many attorneys are surprised to learn that discovery is available in arbitration. The guideline is that the amount of discovery must be reasonable within the context of a given case. This article looks at the discovery rules of the four (4) major providers of commercial arbitration and concludes that even if an arbitrator proves uncooperative and is unwilling to order discovery, a series of tools are available that can serve in the place and stead of transitional discovery.
