Abstract:     
In this short ethics essay, the author describes a bewildering alphabet soup of federal and state statutes, and ethical rules and standards (both public and private) which utterly fails to provide clarity regarding when arbitral decisions or mediated settlements might be subject to attack based on a neutral’s alleged bias or conflict of interest.
