Davy's Executors v. Faw, 11 U.S. 7 Cranch 171 171 (1810)
Davy's Executors v. Faw
11 U.S. (7 Cranch) 171
ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT
OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
An award will not be set aside in equity on account of an omission by the arbitrators to act upon part of the matters submitted unless that omission shall have injured the complainant.
That judges chosen by the parties themselves, as well as those constituted by law, ought to be exempt from all imputation of partiality or corruption; that their conduct ought to be fair and their proceedings regular, so as to give the parties an opportunity of being heard and themselves the means of understanding the subjects they are to decide are propositions not to be controverted. But corrupt motives are not lightly to be ascribed to the arbiter, nor is partiality to be ascribed to him on account of difference of opinion with respect to the decision he has made.
