ABSTRACT
The article discusses imperfect minimalism in relation to the Supreme Court case Hall Street Associates LLC v. Mattel Inc. According to the author, the court gave a minimalist opinion when it held that exclusive grounds for expedited judicial review of arbitration awards are covered by sections 9-11 of Federal Arbitration Act (FAA). It adds that the possibility for the parties to contract for expansive review has been left unaddressed by the ruling. It is concluded that the limitations resulting from a minimalist jurisprudence are evident in the case.
