VRG Linhas Aereas S.A. v. MatlinPatterson Global Opportunities Partners II, 12-593

The district court's judgment denying the petition to confirm a Brazilian arbitral award is vacated and remanded, where the district court decided that the parties' dispute was beyond the scope of their arbitration agreement, without first determining whether the parties had agreed to an arbitration clause that clearly and unmistakably assigned to an arbitral panel, rather than to the court, any questions about the scope of their arbitration agreement.
