CC&O represented Axia NetMedia Corporation in the successful appeal of a decision overturning an arbitration award in its favor
Brian Voke, Adam Larson and Brandon Perkins represented Axia NetMedia Corporation in the successful appeal of the District Court’s decision to overturn an arbitration award in its favor. The underlying case concerned a breach of contract claim regarding the construction and management of a fiber-optic broadband network in Western Massachusetts owned by Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (“MTC”). The District Court reversed the arbitrator’s decision voiding a Guaranty contract between Axia and MTC. Axia appealed that decision and the First Circuit reversed the District Court’s order, holding that the arbitration award voiding the Guaranty was well grounded in the record. The First Circuit remanded the case with instructions that the District Court enter judgment confirming the arbitration award.
