Judgment of the Supreme Court of Sweden, 3 December 2008, Case No. Ö 4227-06/NJA 2008 s. 1118
Summary: The appellant requested that the arbitrators’ fees be reduced under Section 41 of the Swedish Arbitration Act. The fees had been established by the arbitral institution that administered the arbitration, in accordance with the institution’s rules. The arbitrators asserted that Section 41 of the Swedish Arbitration Act does not apply when someone other than the arbitrators establish the fees. The Supreme Court of Sweden disagreed and held that even fees established by someone besides the arbitrators, including an arbitral institution, are reviewable by the proper District Court under Section 41.
