Federal Judge Confirms Award Issued By The Court Of Arbitration of Barcelona

CHICAGO - An Illinois federal judge on March 21 confirmed a Spanish arbitration award issued in favor of a cultural forum, finding that a council failed to show that the court lacked jurisdiction over the confirmation proceedings and failed to submit a valid defense under the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (Universal Forum of Cultures Barcelona 2004, S.L. in liquidation v. Council for Parliament of the World's Religion, No. 12-3542, N.D. Ill.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 39719).
