Following clarification by the arbitrator of his arbitration award, the parties sought confirmation, vacature, and/or modification of the award. The court found the award lacked finality: the issue of warrants was before the arbitrator, but even upon the request to clarify the economic value of the warrants, the arbitrator “expressly stated that he did not reach any conclusion as to that issue.” Thus, if the court were to confirm the award as it stood, “it would undoubtedly result in further litigation to determine the economic value of the warrants.” The court therefore requested that the arbitrator limit his decision to the dollar amount to which the petitioner was entitled and confirmed the remainder of the award.
