The Finnish Supreme Court and the Liability of Arbitrators

...Journal of International Arbitration 23(1):95--]00,2006. © 2006 Kluwer Law International. Printed in The Netherlands. The Finnish Supreme Court and the Liability Of Arbitrators Gustaf MoLL1 R* I. INTRODUCTION On January 31, 2005, the Finnish Supreme Court gave its judgment in a case con¬cerning arbitrators' liability.; An arbitral award had been set aside as the chairman of the arbitral tribunal could have been challenged on grounds of which the parties, at whose request the award was set aside, had not been aware before the award was rendered. The arbitrator was found liable to compensate these parties, who had been claimants in the arbitral proceedings, for the costs and expenses they had incurred because of the arbitral proceedings. This case, Ruolas v Pro, fessor J. Tepora, is apparently the first reported Finnish case concerning an arbitrator's liability. There is no provision on arbitrators' liability in the Finnish Arbitration Act. 2 How¬ever, it seems that in practice, the question of an arbitrator's civil liability arises extremely rarely in Finland. II. BACKGROUND The arbitral proceedings concerned a dispute which arose out of a sale of shares in 1993. The sellers Unto, Sirkka and Jukka Ruola ("the Ruolas") were the claimants (and respondents to the counterclaim), and the purchaser Rakennustoimisto A. Puolimatka Oy ("Puolimatka") was the respondent (and counterclaimant). Puolimatka's owners, Kansallis-Ylityma Oy and Merita Pankki Oy ("the banks"), were......

... Chidamba- ram said, “a number of measures (have been taken) to strengthen and restore and improve confidence in the Indian economy.” He further said that although the Central Statistical Organisation reported a growth of 5 per cent in 2012-13, most of the states have reported higher growth. “Only two States reported State GDP growth of less than 5 per cent. All other states reported above 5 per cent... while States are reporting much higher growth rates, the CSO is reporting 5 per cent growth rate... looking at these numbers, we will try to find out where growth is happening and where it is not happening and corrective mea- The Minister also reiterated the fiscal deficit target of 4.8 per cent of the GDP for 2013-14 is a “red line and the red line will not be crossed.” The Government last month sought Parliament’s approval to spend an additional Rs 7,500 crore, including Rs 1,000 crore for setting up of a ‘Nirbhaya Fund’ for safety of women and a similar amount for a women’s bank. As most of the grants were of technical nature and would be matched by savings elsewhere, the cash outgo has been limited to only Rs 127.14 crore. The Minister said he had been very careful in allocating the funds in view of the need to keep fiscal deficit under control. Allaying apprehensions about funding of the Food Security Bill, Chidambaram said adequate money has been provided in the Budget for the current fiscal and “we will fully finance” the requirements in the next Budget also.

Evaluate the demand for the new service line in the market area defined in the case study. Trinity Community Hospital is in need of a new orthopedic center. The need for an orthopedic unit is expect to increase to 46%, and spine procedures are expected to increase 30%. Outpatient spine and joint procedures are expected to go up by 350%. The five year projection plan for orthopedic unit is as follows: each orthopedic surgical gross charges is projected to be $25,000, physical therapy has a gross charge of $275 per unit. Collections are projected to be around 35%, and the ratio of cost to charges is 31% (Western Governors University, n.d.). The current research indicates the current area is in need of an orthopedic center. The other two hospitals that are close to Trinity represent the biggest competition and have a good orthopedic program. The other hospitals are private, and this increases the demand for Trinity developing a good orthopedic program. Trinity is centrally located within the community, and the population is expected to grow four percent a year, the need for a good orthopedic unit at Trinity will continue to grow. Trinity has performed a needs assessment, and determined Trinity could provide orthopedic services many people within the community. The current resources that Trinity has are not enough...

The End of the Line

...English Essay made of several essays cobbled together from plagiarized sources When analyzing different novels, you must learn to read between the lines and look for the deeper meaning. For instance, the famous saying “The grass is always greener on the other side” can be taken many different ways. If you read the statement literally, it tells you about the color of the grass and that it is on the other side. If you review the statement closely and think about the meaning behind it, you can see that it is relating to the feeling of when people get jealous of other people’s lives. The greener grass symbolizes the other person’s better, richer life. August Wilson’s play Fences provides numerous opportunities for the reader to read between the lines and find the deeper meaning of the themes in the play. I am going to discuss how the themes of the fence and the “sins of the father” carry meaning and are related to the characters Rose, Cory, Lyons and Troy. In Incidents of the Life of a Slave Girl Linda Brent is born into slavery. As a slave, then a fugitive slave and a mother, she has many fears. Linda lives each day worrying about her safety and the safety of her family. Starting from a young child, Linda was a slave she dealt with the hardship that comes with having an owner, a mistress, and having to watch her kids go through the same things. As Harriet Jacobs describes in depth in this book, slavery is hard and horrible for both men and woman, but in most cases is a lot...

The Purple Line

...Dave Harvey Case Brief #2 The Purple Line & The Hay’s Spring Amphipod Issue The client is interested in purchasing a lot near the new proposed metro purple line that runs to Montgomery County, MD however; there has been word that an endangered species is currently living in the Rock Creek Park, which will be affected by this new metro line. The main issue is that you can’t do any work or construction that can harm the endangered species that has been officially listed. This issue can cause a major delay in the additional metro line and can sway the client’s decision of opening a new lot in that location if it won’t be possible to build the metro line any longer. Another issue is determining if that endangered species is still living in the Rock Creek Park because if not, they will be taken off the endangered species list and the metro line will then be in progress. There has to be evidence to prove that the endangered species is no longer there in order for them to continue with this project and the client purchasing a nearby lot for business. Facts To start, the Hay’s Spring Amphipod has been federally listed on the protected endangered species list since 1982. This endangered species has a way of signaling that the water is good quality and if destroyed then that won’t happen. The Hay’s Spring Amphipod has only been located in the Rock Creek Park on this earth. However, it has been stated that the Maryland Department of Natural Resources didn’t mention any......

The Line

..."The Line - Poverty in America" I really like the documentary; I think that the very first thing it wants to communicate as is that everybody in this world can become a victim of poverty. In the documentary we have the example of the banker; before he lost his job he had a good life, but after loses his job he lives under the line of poverty. We have other examples that in my opinion explain how everybody might be living under the poverty line such as single father in the suburbs who now relies on a food pantry and an aging Louisiana fisherman whose shrimp business has been devastated by the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This last case, the fisherman, a person who owns a little business fishing shrimp and his life was a comfortable life, suddenly something external of him and something in which he is not able to combat like an oil spill destroys all his business, the only way that he had to earn money, and now he doesn’t know what to do to earn some money. After all assignments about Poverty in America I realized that there is too much poverty in America that I thought. Even more that in Europe which is where I am from. However, once I realized there is more poverty in America that I thought I noticed that in the streets there are a lot more homeless in this country than in every countries in the first world. I also realized that fortunately the poverty in the world is decreasing little by little but otherwise we have a lot of work to do in order to have the......

Finnish Lessons

...A Quick Review of the Book “Finnish Lessons” by Mr. Pasi Sahlberg The story of Finland's extraordinary educational reforms is one that should inform policymakers and educators around the world. No one tells this story more clearly and engagingly than Pasi Sahlberg. This book is a wake-up call for the United States. Finland went from mediocre academic results to one of the top performers in the world. And they did it with unions, minimal testing, national collaboration, and elevating teaching to a high-status calling. A terrific synthesis by a native Finn, a teacher, a researcher, and a policy analyst all rolled up into one excellent writer. Pasi Sahlberg teaches us a great deal about what we need to know before engaging in national educational reforms. Finland's remarkable educational story, so well told in this book by Pasi Sahlberg, is both informative and inspiring because it shows that with appropriate effort sustained over time, a country can make huge improvements for its young people, something that all countries aspire to do. Pasi Sahlberg is the best education policy expert to share the Finnish experiences with the international community. The book, by Pasi Sahlberg (2011) starts with the thesis of the success of the Finnish education system. The introduction explains some of the reasons for the success story that is going to be presented in the five chapters of the book. Among those reasons are:       Young people learn well in schools with low performance......

The Line

...The Line There is a line across the desktop in the middle. In most primary schools, when a pair of deskmates is a boy and a girl, they will carve such a line, as inviolable as the 38th Parallel, to divide the territory. There is an invisible line in the high school refectory. Boys and girls seat themselves in two parts of the room. The line is a tacit agreement on which concurred by them. There are quite a few lines, perceptible or imperceptible, that reflect the differences between male and female in nearly all aspects of life, no matter how old they are. Language is another field that proves the existence of sexual lines. It`s so easy to notice the line between men and women when it comes to the use of language, and such kind of sex difference seems to be a reasonable choice. In her essay The Party Line, the author Rachel Rafelman starts with the gender split in party and sets out to explore the social dynamic of men and women in conversation by combining the ideas of plenty of writers, editors and friends with hers. According to her, women get personal and are more interesting than men, who limit their talking in business, in conversation. “Given a chance, everyone prefers talking to women (317)”. Nevertheless, men are instinctively blowing their horns when talking while women have no such “instrument”—they even depreciate themselves. However, on the basis of another essay about this gender issue, Sex Differences by Ronald Macaulay, men and women do not acquire and...

A Line in the Sand

...Book Review A Line In The Sand. Randy Roberts and James S. Olson. New York: Simons and Schuster, 2001. 320. In the novel A Line in the Sand the coauthors Randy Roberts and James S. Olson discuss what they consider the three battles of the Alamo. The first battle discussed in the novel is the Texas Revolution and the events that took place on March 6, 1836. The second battle of the Alamo took place 50 years later and was intrigued by two women who preserved the sight of the Alamo as we know it today. Lastly the Alamo is discussed as a battlefield and the way people see the Alamo today in different perspectives. The purpose for this novel is to inform the general public of the facts of the Alamo from the American and Mexican perspectives. I found this book to be a very interesting but hard read and I assure you I know a lot more about the Alamo then I ever did. Olson and Roberts do a very good job on making the reader think about how they “remember the Alamo”. Roberts and Olson appear to me as very educated historians; I do not disagree with them. Both authors examine their personal views of the historic event, while Exploring through the impact that the Alamo “story” has had on today’s society. The book brings out the events in a much more “alive” way unlike they are told today. Television and movies is an impact of the writing of The Line in the Sand. As we all know most movies are either entirely made up or they make false assumption towards reality, such as the......

Finnish Project Management Championships 2010

...Finnish Project Management Championships 2010 Technical case Case OleanTek: scheduling, resourcing and costs for a new service business launch project OleanTek is a medium-sized technology-based firm with its core business in equipment and system deliveries for large engineering industry clients. Its three strategic customers have increasingly requested maintenance services after the actual equipment and system deliveries, and these services have so far been carried out by the side of other duties by the technical staff. OleanTek’s leaders have noticed that maintenance could be implemented also in the form of more strategic service business that could complement the company’s offering and generate important benefits to other customers, too. OleanTek has decided to invest in a new service business launch project to plan and test four basic service concepts concurrently: corrective maintenance, preventive maintenance, spare parts service, and modernization. The project starts with delimiting the service offering and ends with planning the broader service launch process; the actual marketing and broader launch of new services are excluded from the project. Paul Lander, the maintenance manager, has been selected as project manager for the project. He is well acquainted with OleanTek and its clientele already. Paul has noticed that it is very difficult to plan the project with detail as most of the tasks include a lot of uncertainty due to their ambiguous content and novelty......

Wired Lines

...Wired Media   ​Wired transmission lines are physical systems that are used to transmit certain physical quantities. They consist of a collection of a set of conductors made up of good conductors of electricity, like copper and aluminum, and a wire.  Some transmission lines used are t-1, t-3, OC lines, DSL, dial-up, and cable lines. ​A T-1 line is a copper or fiber optic telephone line that can carry more data than traditional dial-up lines. These lines were originally made with twisted copper. T-1 lines are still being made, but the standard is slowly being upgraded to fiber optic lines. T-1 lines can transmit 1.544 Mbps. They connect geographically separate offices through a private voice and/or data connection. It is very useful for small businesses and commercial buildings with more than 8 lines. Getting a T-1 line is costly (around $1,500 a month), however it could save money for companies who have many phone lines. ​T-3 lines are a collection of about 28 T-1 lines that can transmit data at 44.736 Mbps. Obviously they are faster than T-1 lines, because they have a collection of 28 T-1 lines. They are used for longer distances than T-1 as well. Similar to T-1 lines, they are used to connect geographically separate offices through a private voice and/or data connection. They cost upwards of $3,000 a month to operate so not all small businesses can afford to have a T-3 line. ​Optical Carrier lines (OC lines), are a part of the Synchronous Optical Network (SONET). OC-1......

The Red Line

...The Red Line, By Charles Higson Analysis In this short story by Charles Higson we are introduced to three characters (four, including Cathy) that have nothing in common whatsoever. They come from different environments, backgrounds and families. However, as the story proceeds we discover how fragile, weak and alike they become when their fears take over their lives. I will therefore do a thorough analysis focusing on fear of the unknown as the main theme. In order to do that, I find it important to do a characterization to gain an insight to the four protagonists’ personalities. Berto, Denise and “the nameless guy” are all sitting in the same cabin in The Tube in London. Berto is visiting London trying to find the love of his life, Cathy, an English girl who has visited Berto in Italy where they have had an affair. To his disappointment he comes to find out that she is in a relationship. She leaves him in the Tube after an argument. He feels very self-conscious about speaking English. He has asked for directions and he hasn’t been able to make himself clear, so the man just laughed at him and it has been very humiliating. Another obstacle for him is his pride. He is on the platform and he is deciding whether he should ask anybody for directions and he keeps making excuses of why he shouldn’t. The old women are deaf, some of the men seem drunk and so on. Nobody is good enough. He is actually ashamed of asking for the cherub’s help. (“Why was he ashamed to ask...
