In the article, Mr. Attisani advances the analysis introduced in the first installment by examining the extent of an arbitrator’s power to order injunctive relief, exercise subpoena powers, and issue confidentiality orders.  He also analyzes the practical challenges faced by arbitrators who exercise those powers.
