Issues: (1) Whether the Federal Arbitration Act categorically forecloses courts from vacating an arbitration award on the ground that the award is contrary to public policy; and (2) whether the FAA’s protection against an arbitrator’s “evident partiality” is triggered when there is a reasonable impression of partiality, or instead by a more heightened standard such as a showing of actual bias.
