Swissmex-Rapid S.A. v. SP Systems, LLC, B238054

Trial court's judgment confirming an arbitration award in favor of plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) section 9 of the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) is procedural, not substantive, and therefore does not apply in state court proceedings; and 2) even assuming section 9 of the FAA does apply to state court proceedings so as to require the parties' prior consent to judicial confirmation of an arbitration award, the parties in this case consented to judicial confirmation of any arbitration award.
